Lots of people across Cuyahoga County got a rude wake-up call Thursday morning.

The Sheriff's Department is leading the charge with a two-day sweep called "Post-Fugitive Safe Surrender."

Seven teams made up of officers from departments across the county are arresting folks who didn't turn themselves in on outstanding warrants as a part of the Fugitive Safe Surrender Program.

There is still no word on how many arrests have been made in the sweep.

The action is a part of a promise made by county officials who said they would come looking for people with outstanding warrants who chose not to turn themselves in.

The Cuyahoga County Sheriff's Department will announce those numbers Friday.

Meanwhile, Cuyahoga County's Fugitive Safe surrender set a national record with 7,431 people turning themselves in.
