As part of an on-going effort to address outstanding warrants, the Sheriff
Division Special Operations Section-Fugitive Unit conducted a warrant sweep Tuesday night on Oahu, according to the state Dept. of Public Safety.

The sweep targeted traffic, Grand Jury, Probation/Parole violations and criminal
outstanding warrants.

Twenty-nine warrants were cleared and 20 arrests were made. The warrants included two Grand Jury and 27 traffic.

Of the 20 arrests, five were unable to post bail and sent to the Honolulu Police Department for an overnight stay.

"We will continue to work at reducing the existing warrants backlog by utilizing sweeps to maximize limited resources," said State Sheriff Robin Nagamine. "We encourage anyone with a warrant to turn themselves in."
