A four-team joint warrants unit took 38 wanted individuals into custody and cleared over 70 outstanding arrest warrants from March 27 to March 29.
The majority of the warrants cleared were from Kitsap County, but the total also included a number issued out of King, Mason, Pacific and Spokane counties. According to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s office, many of the fugitives had multiple warrants out for their arrest.
During the service of the warrants the teams found and confiscated illegal narcotics including cocaine, heroin, marijuana and methamphetamine. Also confiscated was cash associated with narcotics transactions in addition to a Suzuki 750T motorcycle linked to narcotics sales.
The project included law enforcement personnel from the U.S. Marshals Service, Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, Mason County Sheriff’s office, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Washington State Department of Corrections and the Bainbridge Island Police Department.
