The warrants consisted of felony and misdemeanor attachments, bench warrants for child support, fugitive warrants for other agencies, and probation and parole warrants.

Deputies found one arrested subject in possession of crack cocaine. He was booked with possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine, illegal use of a CDS in the presence of a juvenile, and child passenger restraint system.

Of the twenty-two arrests, twelve subjects remain in custody.
