For Immediate Release:
The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office has concluded a three day multi-agency warrant sweep that resulted in the arrest of 81 wanted persons and the service of 103 arrest warrants, ranging from Recorder’s Court violations to Manufacturing of Controlled Substances.
On May 12th, 13th and 14th, 60-75 law enforcement officers from the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office, Gwinnett County Police Department, Lawrenceville Police Department, Duluth Police Department, Suwanee Police Department, Norcross Police Department, Snellville Police Department, Lilburn Police Department, Georgia Department of Pardons and Parole and the Gwinnett Metro Drug Task Force worked together each night to serve outstanding warrants throughout Gwinnett County.
In addition to the successful service of 103 arrest warrants, a marijuana grow house was discovered and leads on fugitives were developed, which are expected to result in additional arrests.
The success of this warrant sweep is attributed to the hard work of everyone involved. “It’s always good to join forces with multiple agencies to achieve a common goal for the good of our community. Not only is the additional manpower an asset, it provides the opportunity for local law enforcement agencies to strengthen their working relationships, which also benefits the community,” stated Major Kirk Williamson, Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office Field Operations Division Commander.
Sheriff Butch Conway drove the paddy wagon on Tuesday night, assisting the operating by transporting arrestees to the Gwinnett County Jail.
