Portage Police Conduct Warrant Sweep

Share this post

The Portage Police Department conducted a warrant sweep throughout the city on Wednesday to clear out a backlog of felony, misdemeanor and civil warrants.  About 120 warrants were attempted with 14 arrests being made.  The department, with assistance from the city's police reserves conducted the warrnat sweeps in two waves.  The first wave was conducted in the morning from 7-11 am and the second wave occurred from 6-10pm.  While serving the warrants, Portage Police said they also arrested 2 subjects who had been smoking marijuana, possessed drug paraphernalia, possessing alcohol as a minor and had unprescribed pills in their possession.
The goal of the department was to arrest 30 people on warrants; however the department was only able to take half that number into custody.  Portage Police remind those who may currently have an active warrant to take care of it on their own before the police appear at their door and take them into custody at a time that may not be convenient.
