September 29, 2015 (Lakeside)—Twenty people were arrested Saturday morning during a probation compliance sweep conducted by Sheriff’s detectives, deputies and other staff.

The objective was to verify that probationers were abiding by terms of their release from County jail.  The probationers were identified through crime and intelligence analysis as individuals most likely to reoffend, said Sergeant David Hale.  In addition, deputies from the Court Service Bureau Field Division sought out people with active warrants in the area.

Of the 20 arrested, 13 were arrested on warrants and seven others were arrested for felony and misdemeanor charges.  In addition, stolen property items, $260 in counterfeit currency and a large amount of marijuana was seized at one of the residences.

Several others were confirmed to be in compliance with terms of their probations.
