ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) – Dozens of probation violators are back in jail as part of an arrest warrant roundup being conducted by law enforcement agencies at the local, state and federal level.
The Roswell Daily Record reports 60 arrests were made over the weekend in the third phase of a five-part crackdown on individuals who have violated their probation.
Roswell Police spokesman Todd Wildermuth says investigations led law enforcement officers to residences where most of the wanted individuals were arrested, with 16 in or around Roswell.
The United States Marshals Service, FBI and New Mexico State Police are a few of the agencies taking part in the effort focused on six southeast New Mexico counties.
