Town of Newburgh police are taking to social media to find crime suspects.
Authorities are putting up dozens of wanted posters on their Facebook page in a campaign they call "Warrant Wednesday." 
Anyone with information on any of the suspects is asked to call them at (845) 564-1100. They say do not approach the suspect yourself and do not post any tips on the Facebook page.
Police officials say the number of open warrants is up over 40% since the New York State Bail Reform has been instituted.
