California DUI warrant sweep

California DUI attorney criminal defense drunk driving lawyers

In an effort to get the jump on holiday drunken drivers, the San Bernardino County California Sheriff’s Victorville station, in conjunction with officers from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, attempted to serve 120 California drunk driving / DUI arrest warrants Tuesday.

The sweep netted more than 15 California drunk driving / DUI arrests and was concentrated within the Victorville city limits.

Most of the subjects seemed to be habitual California drunk driving / DUI offenders.

In checking the warrants, many of these people have had multiple arrests for California drunk driving / DUI.

During the California drunk driving / DUI / DWI sweep, which took place from noon to the evening hours, six teams of deputies were able to uncover other illegal activity such as possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Those who were not home were given the opportunity to come in to the police station in order to have a citation issued to show up in California drunk driving / DUI court.

“If he comes in to the station, we will try to issue him a new court date. But if he gets caught driving, he will go to jail,” said Deputy Jasmine Sanchez to the wife of one California drunk driving / DUI subject.

The California drunk driving / DUI operation was specially funded through a grant from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Other projects funded by the grant have resulted in arrests for sales of alcohol to minors, minors in possession of alcohol and parties where adults have allwed juveniles to consume alcohol, and related California drunk driving efforts.
