Marysville police, CHP make arrests in DUI warrant sweep

The Marysville Police Department reported that a number of DUI warrants were cleared during a DUI Task Force warrant sweep Tuesday.

Police and California Highway Patrol officers fanned out into Yuba, Sutter and Butte counties to serve warrants on individuals who violated court orders, terms of their DUI probation or failed to appear in court for their DUI arrest.

During the seven-hour operation, officers attempted service on 40 warrants. Four of the subjects were found, arrested and booked into jail, according to a Police Department news release.

Many suspects had moved or, in some cases, had been deported, but the search will continue for the remaining people, said Officer Richard Seghieri, a spokesman for the Avoid the 9 DUI program in Yuba, Sutter and Colusa counties.

"Other warrant/probations sweeps are planned in the future, and we remind anyone with legal problems to go to court and clear up their issues to avoid a 'surprise' visit from law enforcement," Seghieri said in a written statement.

The Avoid the 9 agencies will conduct other enforcement operations, including DUI/drivers license checkpoints and DUI saturation patrols through the Labor Day weekend. Funding for the program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Safety Administration.
