When Sirius Black was on the run in 1993, he was sighted in Dufftown by a sleepy Muggle woman. This woman alerted the Crime Watchers Hotline and the Ministry of Magic was duly informed. Taken by surprise and in a desperate measure to seize Black, Minister Cornelius Fudge ordered hundreds of Witch Watchers to the village. The Ministry's attempt to catch Black was unsuccessful, however, as he had already left Dufftown when the Witch Watchers arrived.
