20 arrested in overnight warrant sweep

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

As part of an on-going effort to address outstanding warrants, the Sheriff Division Special Operations Section-Fugitive Unit conducted a warrant sweep Tuesday night.

The sweep targeted traffic, Grand Jury, Probation/Parole violations and criminal outstanding warrants.

29 warrants were cleared and 20 arrests were made. The warrants included two Grand Jury and 27 traffic related incidents.

Of the 20 arrests, five were unable to post bail and detained at the Honolulu Police Department.

"We will continue to work at reducing the existing warrants backlog by utilizing sweeps to maximize limited resources," said State Sheriff Robin Nagamine. "We encourage anyone with a warrant to turn themselves in."
