Operation Accountability A Success, Police Looking For Those Wanted On Warrants

Last updated on Monday, December 17, 2018

(MOORESVILLE) - Morgan County federal, state and local enforcement served 130 arrest warrants during what they called Operation Accountability.

With no warning, police showed up in full force pounding on doors. Door after door, they were looking for anyone in the county with an outstanding arrest warrant.

Often times, police couldn't find who they were looking for. Only one of eight people with warrants was found on Friday.

Police say that is pretty common because those wanted on warrants often move from area to area staying with friends.

The purpose of the roundup was to get everyone with an active arrest warrant off the street.

Dozens of officers from the US Marshal's Service, Indiana State Police, Morgan, Johnson, Owen, Monroe, Marion, Martinsville and Hendricks County sheriff's offices assisted serving warrants in Brooklyn, Mooresville, and Martinsville.

Law enforcement agencies met prior to the roundup, divided into teams of 8-10 officers and split the warrants into fewer than 25 warrants per team.

Even though the suspects were tough to find, authorities say Operation Accountability was a success.
