State and federal law enforcement agents have arrested 231 people as part of a fugitive roundup in Maricopa and Pinal counties.

The weeklong "Operation Justice V" effort focused on those with outstanding felony warrants.

About half of the warrants that were served this week involved drug-related offenses.

Among those arrested were Richard Jones, 33, a registered sex offender. He was apprehended for arson, threatening and intimidating and criminal damage. Officers tracked Jones to a Phoenix-area apartment complex, where he was found hiding out with associates.

Kenneth Curtis Gibler, 66, was arrested for three counts of sexual assault on a minor for allegedly engaging in inappropriate sexual contact with a 4-year-old child.

Vincente Sanchez, 22, was wanted on a marijuana possession charge. Deputy U.S. Marshals and Task Force Officers tracked Sanchez to a residence in Tolleson, where he was found hiding in a closet. In Sanchez's possession was a saleable quantity of marijuana.

The U.S. Marshals Service says the operation involved more than 150 agents from 30 departments throughout the two counties, including the Chandler and Surprise police departments.
