HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Charged criminals were cuffed and put behind bars as police swept the region for outstanding felony warrants.

Several arrests kept police busy in and around Cabell County Sunday. West Virginia State Police and U.S. Marshals tracked down and rounded up suspected criminals.

Troopers tell WSAZ.com it was off to a slow start with many of the suspects moving since the indictments were issued in both 2011 and 2012.

Police expected to grab several suspected criminals in a matter of hours, but after searching four homes, only nabbed one guy who had an illegal firearm and some drugs on him.

Police arrested Robert Holderby on a felony capious, Charles Bowman for grand larceny and domestic battery and Kevin Holmes for possession with intent to deliver.

Troopers were trying to surprise many of the suspects as they got up for church. Police were still out late Sunday spreading into Wayne and Lincoln Counties.

The numbers for Cabell County are in rounding up five major arrests. Those warrants include possession with intent to deliver, grand larceny, check forgery, domestic battery and sexual assault.

U.S. Marshals helped round up two of those guys across state lines in Lawrence County, Ohio.

Troopers say the hardest part, is finding out when the criminals are living.

"A lot of people skip around," Trooper S.N. Swope said. "These guys are from out of town, they live in one place and do their business in another and it makes it hard to find them."

Swope added, "Eventually they're located either by traffic stop or come in contact with them on a call of some type and a lot of these people are picked up that way."

Police are confident tips will lead them to bust other suspected criminals. They plan on working through the night Sunday.
