Multiple agency warrant sweep

Date: March 24, 2017

On Thursday March 23, 2017, the Ferguson Township, Patton Township Police Departments and the Pennsylvania State Constables conducted a warrant sweep for subjects with outstanding summary warrants. A total of 43 warrants were served in front of Magisterial District Judge Ronald J. Horner.  Charges were for traffic violations as well as non-traffic violations. 

These warrant sweeps are important. Once charges are brought against someone they must be resolved in a court and the person held accountable. Though serious criminal warrants take priority over summary warrants, local agencies make all efforts to serve all warrants.  

Those with active warrants are encouraged to report to the police department or judicial office to resolve the warrant, rather than wait for arrest by police at what may be an inconvenient time.
