JACKSON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Fourth of July is a celebration of our freedom, but that freedom does not extend to fugitives.

The ironically-named "Operation Freedom" is in full swing in Jackson County.

50 law enforcement officers across eight local, state and federal agencies are working a large-scale warrant roundup. They are looking to arrest 90 people. Of that list, 33 are already in custody.

Some of the warrants are 20 years old and range from probation violation to drug charges.
