Special ops effort searches 42 Citrus Heights locations for wanted, parolees, probationers

A special enforcement operation in Citrus Heights resulted in the arrest of three wanted suspects and the discovery of seven probation violations.

Investigators from eight agencies on Wednesday conducted the special ops enforcement. They searched 42 locations from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. for wanted individuals and those on probation or parole.

Citrus Heights police said one of those being sought ran from them. Marcus Campbell, 29, wanted for a parole violation, was encountered by officers near Bremen Drive and Van Maren Lane.

Police chased Campbell on foot. The pursuit ended when Campbell, who climbed onto a roof of a residence, was taken into custody and brought down.

Citrus Heights Police Department Lt. Jeff Mackanin said the all-day effort was a good example of agencies working together for the greater good. He noted the effort benefits all communities because criminals do not respect jurisdictional boundaries.

"This type of innovative partnership strengthens our regional ability to locate fugitives and monitor persons who are under law enforcement supervision," Mackanin said in a press release. "I would expect to see similar operations, in various jurisdictions, in the near future."

Agencies that helped with the Citrus Heights operation: the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department, Sacramento County Probation, California Department of Corrections, Placer County Sheriff's Department, Placer County Probation, Folsom Police Department, and Rocklin Police Department.
