“We did get loaded guns off people yesterday, but for the most part they were court warrants,” Muterspaw said. “We also served warrants on people yesterday who had small warrants but were wanted for questioning on felony crimes. Our goal was to do all this in one sting since we don’t have warrant officers anymore.”
Muterpaw added the department typically does not do sweeps on suspected drug dealers, rather they make the arrest as soon as they get the charge.
“We also don’t publicize all arrests on dealers because a lot of times we roll them into getting the bigger dealer,” he said.

“We are really happy with the success of this warrant sweep,” Muterspaw said “Our goal was to serve as many (warrants) as possible on those who have been evading court or jail, and we did just that.”
