PHILADELPHIA — No sweet love and kisses here. Cops woke up 22 fugitives Thursday morning with hand shackles and a ride to jail.

In their 16th annual, predawn Valentine's Day warrant sweep, more than 50 cops fanned out across Philadelphia and its surrounding counties in search of about 300 fugitives wanted on warrants for offenses big and small. They caught 22 of them in the five-hour sweep and hauled them in to Family Court for processing.
