Upper Marlboro, MD…  Participating in the 15th Annual Clackamas County Domestic Violence Warrant Sweep, the Office of the Sheriff’s Warrant/Fugitive Division led a 12-team countywide warrant operation last Wednesday. The operation began Wednesday night at 10 p.m. and ended at 6 a.m. Thursday morning.
The operation resulted in 65 arrests to close 79 warrants, the majority of which were domestic violence related First & Second Degree Assaults. Warrants also included First Degree Burglary, Sex Abuse of a Minor, Firearms Possession/ with a felony conviction, Violation of Exparte  Order, Concealed Deadly Weapon, FTA Theft Scheme ($1,000 to 10,000), and CDS Possession not/ Marijuana with intent to distribute, along with some Child Support documents. All arrests during the operation occurred without incident.      
A grant from the Governor’s Office for Crime Control and Prevention assisted with the funding for this initiative. “We continue to be successful in closing warrants with the support of the GOCCP and partner agencies. The combination of financial resources and the tremendous manpower boost, gave us the ability to make 293 service attempts. A 22% service rate is an outstanding result, “said Captain Randall Cooper, Assistant Bureau Chief of Field Operations.
