Mass arrest sweep nets 23 arrests from one end of Lincoln County to the other – OPERATION TIDAL WAVE III
Now that law enforcement is done – for now – here’s the scoresheet as provided by Newport Police.
On September 16th and 17th, Newport Police Officers partnered with local law enforcement agencies and the U.S. Marshals Task Force to conduct a multi-law enforcement agency warrant sweep operation. The operation focused on the execution of outstanding felony arrest warrants, and the investigation of sex offender compliance, to include violations of the Adam Walsh Act. Other potential targets during this sweep included the Newport Police Department’s and Lincoln County’s “Most Wanted”.
During the two-day operation, 23 arrests were made by participating members, and 186 Sex Offender Registration Compliance Checks were completed. Officers made forced entries into two separate residences where wanted subjects were hiding from law enforcement. During one arrest, a subject was identified as being wanted and led officers on a short foot pursuit that resulted in the suspects’ capture.
