Police in Picayune, Miss., have turned to a unique method of determining how to arrest individuals on outstanding warrants: They have created a Wheel of Fortune-type spinning wheel, to which they attach the names of persons wanted on arrest warrants.
Whoever the wheel lands on gets arrested, reports the Biloxi-Gulfport Sun-Herald.
According to the paper, the police force made its first "Wheel of Justice" arrest Tuesday, taking into custody Dewayne Allen Bester, Jr., who was wanted for selling crack coc aine near a schoolyard.
Officers plan to spin the wheel once per week at different locations in the city. Next week, they may do it at a local radio station, Ervin said. Narcotics officers will determine which drug suspects to put in the running and they likely won’t feature the same eight offenders from week to week. Ervin said Picayune police’s drug arrests aren’t limited to those Tuesdays when they spin the wheel.
The hope is that the “Wheel of Justice” causes citizens to take note of drug activity so they will call in tips to officers.
