(WXYZ) — Dearborn police say there are 30 violent fugitives they want off the streets, and they're teaming up with the U.S. Marshals to put their Most Wanted behind bars.

People with warrants hiding out in Dearborn are the targets of this week's Detroit's Most Wanted.

"These offenders are serial offenders," said Lt. Timothy McHale. "They commit crimes over and over, and they really violate the sanctity and security of our neighborhoods."

It's a collaboration between Dearborn Police and the U.S. Marshals, a fugitive sweep extending throughout metro Detroit.

"The sweep involves serial offenders, those who have long criminal histories, numerous offenses within the city of Dearborn - Dearborn's Most Wanted," said Lt. McHale.

There have been arrests already made in Redford, Detroit, Sterling Heights, Whitmore Lake, Romulus and Inkster, but one man is still wanted.

This guy is a serial thief – he's on parole, convicted felon for doing the same stuff , stolen property – he was known to run chop shops in the past," said U.S. Marshal Aaron Garcia. "He's just a thief."

28-year-old Timothy Hobson is wanted out of Dearborn and Allen Park.

"He's committed multiple crimes not only in Dearborn, but in the region the last several weeks," said Lt. McHale. "He's pretty much a walking crime wave. We need to get him off the street before we have more victims."

Police say this is just one of the cars he stole. The window has U.S. Marin Corp Veteran decal.

"He's stealing cars at such a rapid rate, and he is not scared to get caught," said Lt. McHale.

Police say their search for Hobson led to the discovery of more stolen vehicles.

"Officers made contact at Hobson's residence and recovered several stolen cars that were taken from cities throughout the region," said Lt. McHale.

Now police need your help tracking him down.

"We're here to support our state and local partners. This is one example of what we often do with partners on our task force." said Lt. McHale.

As always, there's a cash reward for any information leading to the arrest of Timothy Hobson. You can call the U.S. Marshals anytime at (313) 234-5656.
