Upper Marlboro, MD… The Sheriff’s Warrant/Fugitive Division reported the arrest of 305 suspects in a joint warrant operation conducted April 16th - 27th. The operation was funded with the remainder of a grant from last summer’s warrant initiative funded by the Governor’s Office of Crime Control and Prevention (GOCCP).
A number of law enforcement partners participated in the operation, including the Department of Corrections, Maryland State Police (Forestville Barrack), Greenbelt Police Department, Seat Pleasant Police Department, District (IV) County Police, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office, and the US Marshal Service. “Success is often assured when we combine resources with other partners in law enforcement,” said Sheriff Melvin High. “These operations work for all of us and for the community.”
With 305 arrests, the operation resulted in the closure of 330 warrants. The operation, which was conducted throughout Prince George’s County, resulted in the captures of 2 attempted murder suspects, 18 suspects of drug related crimes, and 15 robbery and burglary suspects.
“This funding from the Governor and GOCCP gave us and our partners the extra resources we needed to knock on a lot of doors and we delivered,” said High. “These warrant closures bring the GOCCP grant productivity total to 1148 warrants closed”
