ANNAPOLIS, Md., Feb. 15 (UPI) -- Authorities in Maryland said they made 15 arrests in an undercover operation involving a deputy dressed as a candy delivery worker.

The Anne Arundel County Sheriff's Office said Sgt. Tanya Pfaltzgraff called many of the county's 8,622 residents with unserved warrants and scheduled Valentine's Day deliveries for Lt. Jennifer Gilbert-Duran, who was posing Sunday as a delivery driver for Keystone Candigrams, The Baltimore Sun reported Monday.

"They schedule their own arrests," Anne Arundel Sheriff Ron Bateman said.

Bateman said about two-thirds of the people who scheduled deliveries were home when Gilbert-Duran arrived and 15 people were arrested after signing their names to verify their identities for the "candy grams."
