31 arrested in “Operation Rake Eagle”

 

DECATUR – DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis announces that “Operation Rake Eagle” was an outstanding success.  On Saturday and Sunday, March 24 and 25, the DeKalb County Police Department made a substantial, concerted “sweep” effort in an attempt to find, arrest and incarcerate individuals who did not meet their obligations in DeKalb County Recorders Court.

Thirty-eight officers from Special Operations and Uniform Division conducted the sweep which included 462 outstanding warrants.  The officers made 31 arrests and $40,687 was collected as a result of those arrests.

 “We are grateful for the support given to Recorders Court by the DeKalb County Police Department and Sheriff on ‘Operation Rake Eagle’”.  At least three similar operations will be conducted this year and we are working with other jurisdictions to coordinate a larger operation in the near future,” said Judge Nelly Withers, Chief Judge of Recorders Court.  “Future efforts will include tools such as plate readers and other detective devices to bring closure to as many open cases and warrants as possible.”
