The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday arrested more than 20 people as part of its Operation Summer Heat.

The operation was developed to execute outstanding warrants by saturating areas that contain a high concentration of individuals with warrants, said Mike Swafford, office spokesman.

Deputies made 28 arrests, executing 34 warrants. The arrests range from failure to appear on a traffic citation to possession of narcotics.

“One of our primary function as the sheriff’s office is to execute arrest warrants issued by the court system. This type of operation allows us to accomplish that, while fostering cooperation across multiple teams,” Sheriff Ron Puckett said in a press release.

People who think they may have a warrant for their arrest can check the sheriff’s office website www.morgancoso.com, or by calling 256-351-4800.
