Latest Safe Streets warrant sweep results in 36 arrests

Sheriff's deputies, city police take part in operation

CUMBERLAND — The Cumberland Police Department and allied agencies served 42 arrest warrants that resulted in 36 people being arrested during the most recent Operation Safe Streets warrant initiative held last week.

“Our goal continues to be making our streets safer through the reduction of backlogged arrest warrants,” David Goad, program coordinator, said. Operation Safe Streets sought citizen help in locating those wanted on open arrest warrants and police apprehended 12 of the 16 individuals whose names were released to the media for publication.

“This is another successful operation resulting from citizen assistance and the hard work by all the Allegany County sheriff’s deputies, Cumberland Police officers and warrant officers that participated in this operation,” Goad said.
