On Thursday March 23, 2017, the office of Pennsylvania State Constable Council Nedd, participated in warrant sweep with the Ferguson Township Police Warrant Squad and the Paton Township Police Warrant Squad. The warrant squads were seeking individuals with outstanding summary warrants. A total of 43 warrants were served before Magisterial District Judge Ronald J. Horner. Constable Nedd closed out 18 warrants on the day of the sweep. The charges were for traffic and non-traffic violations.
These warrant sweeps are important. Once charges are brought against an individual, the must be resolved in court and the defendant held accountable. Though serious criminal warrants take priority over summary offences, all of the involved agencies make it a priority to serve all warrants.
Those with active warrants are encouraged to report to the local police department or district court to resolve the warrant so they are not inconvenienced by being placed under arrest at home, work, or school.
