The U.S. Marshals Service has a new way that you can help them catch our area's most violent fugitives.
You can now text marshals anonymously. They won't see your name or number -- but they can write back and ask follow up questions -- something that is not always possible with some tip lines.
"We can get details in real time about the subject. If you are telling me he is known to hang out on the corner of Y and B…is he there right now? What he is wearing? It's going back and forth having that conversation while all along keeping the tipster anonymous," said Manny Puri with the U.S. Marshals Service.
To send a tip -- just text "tip 4-1-1" and enter the keyword usmfl. You could get a ten thousand dollar reward.
The Marshal's task force based in West Palm Beach is busier than ever. Marshals have arrested over six hundred suspected murderers, kidnappers, and armed robbers last year.
