Antioch Police, other agencies arrest 25 during felony warrant sweep, sex registrant compliance operation

By Lieutenant Tony Morefield, Antioch Police  Patrol Division

From 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Monday, September 26, 2016 through Wednesday the 28th, officers and detectives of the Antioch Police Department, in partnership with members of the United States Marshals Service, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, San Francisco Police Department, Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office, California Highway Patrol, Department of State, California Department of Corrections, Contra Costa County Probation, Pittsburg Police Department, and High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) conducted a three day, felony warrant sweep and sex registrant compliance check operation around East Contra Costa County.  This multi-agency event consisted of two parts: the first (two day) part of the operation was focused on serving outstanding, felony arrest warrants, and the second (one day) part was devoted to sex registrant address verifications and compliance checks.

The event went from the early morning hours into the afternoon each day and yielded a total 25 arrests for charges ranging from fugitive warrants to weapons charges.  In addition to these arrests, one loaded firearm was seized during this operation and over five dozen sex offender address verifications were conducted.  This was a cooperative effort intended to bring known and suspected offenders into custody and help further ensure the safety of this and our surrounding communities.

No additional information concerning this operation will be released at this time.
