This year, because of COVID-19 restrictions, officials decided to forego a public gathering and instead agreed to produce videos that will be shared online and through social media platforms, said the news release.

Billboards, posters, flyers, and videos of the top ten targets will be displayed in heavily traveled locations throughout the region.

Border Patrol said along with the pictures of the targets, two phone numbers are listed allowing the public to provide anonymous tips to assist in the arrest of these individuals.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and report suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.
