CONYERS -- The Rockdale County Sheriff's Office wrapped up a 24-hour warrant roundup Wednesday that resulted in the arrests of more than 20 suspects with active warrants.
Beginning Tuesday afternoon, deputies with the RCSO went to known addresses for suspects with outstanding warrants in an effort to arrest them. According to the RCSO, while the agency does seek out suspects with warrants on a daily basis, this more concentrated effort teamed up deputies from various divisions within the RCSO to more effectively locate and arrest suspects with warrants.
In total, 23 suspects were arrested in the 24-hour period. Most of the warrants were for failure to appear and probation violation, some of which stemmed from original felony charges.
"This is just the first of many warrant roundups as part of a new effort by the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office to get criminals off the streets," said Sheriff Eric Levett.
The RCSO is also asking the public to let the Sheriff's Office know the whereabouts of anyone who has an active warrant in Rockdale County by calling Capt. Mike Ransom with the Warrants & Civil Division at 770-278-8005 or by submitting the information through the website at www.rockdalesheriff.com under the Contact Us section.
