Law Enforcement Agencies to Conduct “Warrant Sweep” 06 Dec 16

(MINNEAPOLIS) – The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office and a dozen other area law enforcement agencies will conduct a sweep to clear active warrants and makes arrests throughout the County tomorrow (Wednesday, December 7, 2016).

The Sheriff’s Office is urging individuals with active warrants to surrender to authorities regardless of the offense.

Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek says “My message for anyone with an outstanding warrant – turn yourself in. No matter what your warrant is for, ignoring it will not make it go away.” Stanek says “If you don’t turn yourself, we will find you.”

There are advantages to a voluntary surrender – by doing so, a wanted person will avoid being arrested by deputies at their home or workplace.

A wanted person may surrender to the Sheriff’s Office or their local police department. Individuals with all types of felony and gross misdemeanor warrants will be pursued, with a focus on warrants related to violent crime.
