BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (CBS NEWS) – A sheriff’s office in central Florida is giving the search for criminals a creative spin. The game show-style videos feature the most wanted local fugitives, and a new episode is added to the sheriff’s Facebook page every week.

The videos have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, and have led to dozens of arrests.

For the last 18 months, a studio at the sheriff’s office has become must-see viewing in Brevard County, reports CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann.

Sheriff Wayne Ivey, the show’s Pat Sajak, had the idea and the personality to host it.

“When we put someone up on the ‘Wheel of Fugitive,” our citizens start sending us messages and contacting us right away,” Ivey said.
