Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Arrests 36 Fugitives, Partners with Local Agencies
In a concerted effort to reduce the number of open warrants for offenders in the community, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office SWAT Team in conjunction with the U.S. Marshal’s Service, Patton Village PD, Montgomery County Constable Pct. 4, and Woodbranch PD conducted a warrant round-up in East Montgomery County during the last week of June. As part of Sheriff Rand Henderson’s special initiative, outlined in his Strategic Plan presented to Commissioners Court in April of this year, the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office arrested 36 individuals for outstanding warrants in a targeted operation.
Sheriff Henderson comments, “as promised, we will continue to seek an increase in the number of warrants cleared on a daily basis by our dedicated SWAT team as well as through partnerships with local and federal law enforcement agencies during regular, pre-planned operations. With the help of these law enforcement partners and our new records management system, we will be able to bring fugitives to justice so they can answer for the crimes they are charged with”.
Several additional operations are planned for this year in every segment of Montgomery County as well as adjoining counties where our fugitives may be hiding. As always, fugitives are encouraged to turn themselves in. “You don’t want these guys coming after you,” said Sheriff Henderson, adding, “Our SWAT team is the best, most professional and effective team around. Coupled with our local law enforcement partners, rest assured that they will find you and they will bring you in.”
