'Borderless' 'street sweep' nabs nearly two dozen on warrants

Posted July 2, 2019

A joint collaberation between Nottawasaga and Dufferin OPP dubbed operation "Street Sweep" conducted between June 24-28 resulted in 23 arrests related to outstanding warrants.

The Community Street Crime Units from both detachments took part in the "borderless" "effort to identify, locate and arrest wanted parties throughout their respective service areas."

OPP Media officer Chad Wilson told Free Press Online the arrests "were not divided up by detachment due to the borderless focus." Additionally, several of these parties received new charges ranging from suspend drive to drug offences. Two new warrants have been sought for parties who have committed bail violations, according to OPP.

"The members from both detachments worked with other OPP assets such as Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement (ROPE) to locate parties wanted throughout Ontario and Quebec."
