DENVER — A handful of wanted sex offenders were rounded up as U.S. Marshals embarked on a four-day operation between May 4 and May 7.

Officials said 19 people were rounded up and arrested on more than 30 outstanding warrants during the sweep.

Those involved in the operation praised the work of 50 officers involved in scouting out the information utilized in the sweep, as well as the partnership between Marshals and local law enforcement. 

Although police didn't release the names of each person arrested, they said they notably arrested Linc Blair, who had outstanding warrants for failure to register as a sex offender. Blair's arrest history includes attempted sex assault on a child and resisting arrest.

During the sweep, police say they developed leads on other of the top 100 most wanted sex offenders.
