Marshals posting fugitives on Ohio billboards

CLEVELAND — Fugitives wanted by the U.S. Marshals will soon have their photos displayed on billboards around Ohio.

Clear Channel has announced the free postings of the fugitives pictures on its digital billboards in Akron, Cleveland and Columbus.

The photos of the wanted individuals will flash between normal advertisements.

Clear Channel already posts photos of suspects wanted by the FBI and also uses the billboards to issue Amber Alerts.

Cleveland FBI spokesman Scott Wilson says the billboard program has been a success and has led to several arrests.
