59 arrests made during two-day Gwinnett warrant sweep

A two-day warrant sweep led by the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office resulted in nearly 60 arrests.

Held Wednesday and Thursday and involving 104 law enforcement officers from several different agencies, the operation ended with 59 wanted people arrested and 77 warrants served. Efforts were focused specifically on the cities of Auburn, Buford, Duluth, Lawrenceville, Lilburn, Loganville, Norcross, Snellville and Suwanee, sheriff’s office spokeswoman Shannon Volkodav said.

Aside from Auburn and Buford, the latter of which doesn’t have its own police force, members of each city’s police department participated. The effort was also held in conjunction with representatives from Gwinnett’s felony probation office.

“The risk factors associated with warrant service require the participation of many law enforcement officers to promote the safety of everyone involved,” Volkodav said. “We appreciate the support of our local agencies and always welcome opportunities to work together to serve the citizens of Gwinnett County.”
