Sheriff’s deputies fanned out across Imperial Beach and other communities in southern San Diego County Saturday morning on a warrant sweep, looking for suspects with outstanding misdemeanor and felony theft, alcohol and drug-related warrants.
The sheriff’s Court Services Bureau-Field Division arrested one adult on a felony warrant and 18 adults on misdemeanor warrants, according to Sgt. Richard George.
Other areas that were included in the warrant sweep were Chula Vista, National City, Otay, Nestor and San Ysidro.
The detail was funded by an AVOID grant and a trust fund of assessment fees collected from people who have violated a written promise to appear in court or otherwise fail to comply with a court order, according to the department. AVOID grants fund anti-DUI efforts by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
