The Floyd County Sheriff’s Office was joined by federal marshals, parole officers and prison workers Wednesday as they hosted a ‘warrant round-up’. During the day, officers arrested 27 people and served 28 warrants. Lt. Richard Argo said that warrants, sometime as many as 900, start to backup and the round-up is a way to clear them out.
Some of the arrest included aggravated assault, arson, burglary and failure to register as a sex offender.
Argo aid that the Sheriff’s Office began looking into whereabouts of those who were wanted earlier this month, since then close to 76 warrants have been served.
