SAN DIEGO–More than two dozen adults were arrested on outstanding warrants during a sweep conducted by the San Diego Sheriff’s Department’s Court Services Bureau-Field Division.
The June 15 sweep included the cities of Vista, San Marcos, Oceanside, Encinitas, National City, Chula Vista, and Imperial Beach. The focus of the operation was on the apprehension of suspects with outstanding misdemeanor and felony Driving Under the Influence and Domestic Violence-related warrants.
A female was arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, a felony, a Sheriff spokesman says.
A total of 36 warrants were cleared. The warrant sweep was funded by the Sheriff’s Warrant System Automation Trust Fund. The trust fund is made up of assessment fees collected from people who have violated a written promise to appear in court or otherwise failed to comply with a court order.
Persons who have outstanding warrants are encouraged to turn themselves in Monday -to Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at any one of the Sheriff’s Court Facilities.
