From the Arlington Police Department:
On Tuesday Aug. 28, the Arlington Police Department conducted an arrest warrant sweep in an effort to execute outstanding arrest warrants for fugitives wanted in Arlington. Officers also worked in other cities and towns throughout Massachusetts to locate and arrest fugitives wanted for crimes committed in Arlington, who have fled the area to avoid apprehension.
Working in partnership with the Middlesex Sheriff’s Department, officers formed into two teams armed with more than 90 arrest warrants and then focused on about 30 high priority outstanding warrants. In all, eight fugitives were captured during the warrant sweep for charges including, but not limited to, the following: Assault and Battery, Assault and Battery Deadly Weapon, Breaking and Entering Nighttime for Felony, Abuse Prevention Order Violation, Intimidation of a Witness, Threatening to Commit a Crime, Possession Class “A” Narcotics, Larceny by Check, Shoplifting and Possession of Liquor Under 21.
“The apprehension of person’s intentionally evading capture is among the most dangerous situations law enforcement officers encounter,” said Chief Frederick Ryan. “I’m happy that this operation was executed flawlessly without any injury to our officers or any of the detainees.”
