Marana Police DUI Warrant Sweep
On July 3, 2015, Marana Police Officers conducted a warrant sweep searching for subjects who had active DUI warrants issued by the Marana Municipal Court. Currently there are approximately 125 active DUI arrest warrants issued by the Marana Municipal Court. Six absconders were located and a total of 8 warrants were served. Four of the warrants totaled $4,243 in bond money. The other four warrants were no bond/revoked probation warrants. Each person located was booked into the Pima County Jail. This is the 1st warrant sweep conducted this fiscal year by the Marana Police Department. Last year the Marana Police Department conducted seven DUI warrant sweeps. Those warrant sweeps resulted in 69 arrests and over $150,000 in recovered bond money and fines. The funding for this warrant sweep came from a grant from the DUI Abatement Council. The Marana Police Department was recently awarded $15,000 in overtime funds allocated for warrant sweeps targeting subjects who have active warrants for DUI and traffic related crimes. The Marana Police Department will be conducting additional warrant sweeps in the near future.
