Freddie Ray Lazzo, three other members of the Denver Top 50 Most Wanted busted

Earlier today, we shared with you the latest edition of Denver's Top 50 Most Wanted Criminals.

And the Denver Police Department is making progress on shrinking that number.

According to Lt. Tony Lopez, commander of the complex-investigations section, four of those listed have already been taken into custody, including No. 33, Freddie Ray Lazzo.

Lopez describes Lazzo as "a bad dude. He was one of the ones we were most worried about -- and we got him."

Details about the busts and the others captured? Lopez happily provides them.
