Police lure fugitives in with offer of a free TV

275x250.jpgCops in Chicago have arrested more than 100 fugitives -- after luring them in with the offer of a free flat-screen TV.

During the bizarre operation officers sent wanted offenders invitations to take part in electronics testing for which they would be paid $75.

The traffic offenders, violent felons and child support avoiders were also told they would get to keep the gizmos they tested out.

As such many of the fugitives turned up to the address given and seemed very happy as they were greeted by undercover cops carrying empty boxes for TVs and video game systems.

Once inside the crooks even posed for smiling photos with the electronics… before other uniformed officers swooped in and made the arrests.
