As part of an on-going effort to address outstanding warrants, the Sheriff Division Special Operations Section-Fugitive Unit conducted a night warrant sweep Tuesday.
The sweep targeted traffic, Grand Jury, Probation/Parole violations and criminal outstanding warrants.
60 warrants were cleared and 39 arrests were made. The warrants included 12 felony and 48 traffic. The felonies consisted of 2 parole retake, 6 Grand Jury/Information Charging, 2 probation, and 2 supervised release violations.
Of the 39 arrests, 7 were unable to post bail and sent to the Honolulu Police Department for an overnight stay.
“We will continue to work at reducing the existing warrants backlog by utilizing sweeps to maximize limited resources,” said State Sheriff Shawn Tsuha. “We encourage anyone with a warrant to turn themselves in.”
