On August 22nd between 0730 hours and 1930 hours, 4 officers attempted to serve approximately 25 arrest warrants on suspects who had been arrested for Driving Under the Influence. Five of the suspects were located, arrested and booked into jail. Officers developed information on several of the other warrants suspects and will continue to be on the lookout for them. "If a person has an arrest warrant for a DUI, they should turn themselves in and take responsibility for their actions," said Sergeant Gerry Ross of Salinas PD. "We will find them eventually and it may not be at the most opportune time."
This operation was part of the AVOID the 20 DUI Summer Campaign, which runs through September 5th. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
