A U.S. Marshals task force arrested 61 fugitives and cleared 74 outstanding warrants during a week-long warrants sweep this week on Maui.

Those arrested were wanted for various crimes including drug, sex and other violent crime offenses. The task force was also involved in last week’s arrest of former Maui police officer Lewis Gamble on charges of sexual assault, impersonating a law enforcement officer, false reporting and kidnapping. He was released on $250,000 bail, the marshals service said.

The U.S. Marshals Service Hawaii Fugitive Task Force is made up of deputy marshals, state deputy sheriffs, Maui police, Big Island police, Kauai police, Honolulu police, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Marshals Service completed a sweep on the Big Island in February, although details of that effort were not immediately available. The task force is planning a sex offender compliance sweep later this year on Oahu.

In the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, the task force arrested more than 700 federal and state fugitives in Hawaii.
