Murray County Sheriff’s Office officials with help from other law enforcement agencies spent Thursday working to round up 128 individuals who had warrants out on them.
Chief Deputy Greg Fowler said officers worked during the past two weeks to identify outstanding warrants and brought in officers from the Georgia State Patrol, state parole, state probation and the Drug Enforcement Administration to help round up those who were wanted on the warrants. Fowler said the warrants are for a variety of crimes.
“It’s been a while since it’s been done in this county, so we just decided today is the day we’re going to do it,” Fowler said.
Fowler said six teams began executing the warrants beginning at about 6:30 a.m. He expected them to be finished by late in the day.
