MSCO warrant sweep results in 150 arrestsThe Macomb County Sheriff's Office teamed up with the Macomb County Friend of the Court and conducted a weeklong warrant "sweep."
The sweep began on Monday, May 12 and concluded on Friday, May 16.
The sweep was announced in advance to try and encourage persons to contact the Friend of the Court and resolve the warrants and avoid arrest.
The sheriff's office made 150 arrest attempts during the week. As a result of their efforts, 68 warrants were executed by arrest with an additional 59 warrants resolved when individuals voluntarily appeared at the Friend of the Court.
There were a total of 127 warrants resolved as a result of the media attention, the voluntary cooperation and the service of arrest warrants.
The past due child support owed on the 127 resolved warrants totaled $1.6 million.
The Macomb County Friend of the Court still has over 3,300 arrest warrants and there will be a continued emphasis placed on resolving the warrants.
Should anyone in the public wish to provide a tip regarding the whereabouts of an individual with an outstanding Friend of the Court warrant, please call (586) 469-5756 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
