Weld County law enforcement serve 15 outstanding arrest warrants

Staff reports

The Greeley Police Department and the Weld County Sheriff's office Wednesday arrested 15 people with a number of active warrants, on suspicion of charges ranging from harassment and assault to child abuse and neglect.

According to a news release from Sgt. Joe Tymkowych, law enforcement officers set out to serve 120 active warrants across Weld County. Throughout the day and into the evening officers talked to 80 different people in an attempt to find the suspects.

Tymkowych said authorities chose Wednesday because it allowed them to make the best use of their resources.

The Greeley Police Department has worked with other agencies in the past to serve several warrants at once. For example, in January 2013, the Greeley and Weld County SWAT teams worked with a team from the Loveland Police Department to serve four drug-related arrest warrants in Greeley and Evans. In October 2014, the Greeley Police Department arrested 12 suspected drug dealers in partnership with the Weld County Drug Task Force, the FBI and the Evans Police Department.

The release said Wednesday's operation was a success, and the Greeley Police Department has plans for more in the future.
