Area law enforcement conducted a massive warrant sweep yesterday leading to 45 arrests.
SPD’s Master Patrol Officer Brent Rupert tells KSAL News the municipal court warrants ranged from – parking citations to domestic violence. District Court warrants were issued for a range of misdemeanors and drug felonies as well.
Officer Rupert says word got out and prompted one man to turn himself in yesterday and he’s hoping more will do the same, “We’d rather they would come in on their own and take care of it,” he said.
“Rather than to be arrested at their employment or at their house in front of their neighbors and family.”
Police say 54 municipal warrants were cleared, 11 District. Three out of county warrants were also cleared along with 3 from the Kansas Highway Patrol.
Officers from Salina Police Department Saline County Sheriff’s Office, Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office and Abilene Police Department, Dickinson County Sheriff’s Office and the Kansas State Parole Fugitive Task Force, Kansas Department of Corrections participated in attempting to serve 276 warrants.
