MCSO executes Operation Summer Heat

Special to the Enquirer

 

The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office executed Operation Summer Heat June 27. $The operation was developed, according to the MCSO, to execute outstanding warrants by saturating areas that contain a high concentration of individuals with warrants.

The initial phase of the operation, taking place from 6-10 p.m., had multiple teams of deputies blanketing multiple areas of the county. Deputies made 28 arrests, successfully executing 34 warrants. The arrests range from failure to appear on a traffic citation to possession of narcotics.

“One of our primary functions as the sheriff’s office is to execute arrest warrants issued by the court system. This type of operation allows us to accomplish that, while fostering cooperation across multiple teams,” Sheriff Ron Puckett said. 

“Individuals that believe there could be a warrant for their arrest can check on our website, www.morgancoso.com, or by calling the sheriff’s office,” public information officer Mike SWafford added. “They can also turn themselves in at the sheriff’s office and avoid a visit from our deputies as this operation continues over the days ahead.”
