Nearly two weeks ago, sheriff's deputies in the East County area of greater San Diego County conducted a massive sweep aimed at targeting approximately 750 people wanted on arrest warrants, mainly
DUI arrest warrants.
The result? 67 arrests.
The sweep began around 6 a.m. By 6:15 a.m., several arrests had already been made. The operation ended around noon.
The San Diego Sheriff's department was assisted by offers from the El Cajon and La Mesa police departments and the California Highway Patrol.
As a result of the sweep, 105 warrants were taken off the books, and many of the people brought into custody had more than one outstanding warrant. Those booked in jail now stand to face enhanced criminal penalties.
