Not sure I get it. Is the idea that people with warrants hide their own addresses so the parents' place is staked out? Or is it that the police officer has the suspect's address, and could arrest there, but an arrest at the parents house during Thanksgiving dinner is more punitive for the suspect and her parents?

People get warrants issued in their hometowns, then move/live out of that area. On Thanksgiving, they come back to their hometown where they can then be picked up by local officers on their warrants.
