MARANA, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Marana Police recently conducted a warrant sweep searching for individuals who have active DUI and traffic warrants.
Sgt. Chris Warren, Public Information Officer, says there are approximately 100 active DUI arrest warrants issued by the Marana Municipal Court.
Officers arrested nine absconders for outstanding warrants, said Warren. Three additional absconders were found to already be in jail.
A total of 21 arrest warrants were served totaling $25,512.00 in bonds, including one no-bond drug warrant. All of the arrestees were booked into the Pima County Jail, said Warren.
Five people contacted the Marana Courts and set up new court dates to have their warrants quashed.
This is the seventh warrant sweep conducted this fiscal year by the Marana Police Department, said Warren.
The Marana Police Department was awarded $30,000 in overtime funds allocated for warrant sweeps targeting subjects who have active warrants for DUI and traffic related crimes from a grant by the DUI Abatement Council.
