In cooperation with the U.S. Marshals Service and Massachusetts State Police, the Cambridge Police Department successfully apprehended fourteen individuals on outstanding warrants.

“This operation was a great success,” said Deputy Superintendent Paul Ames.  “Working with our partners at the State Police and U.S. Marshals Service, we were able to remove several dangerous individuals from our streets and fulfill our obligation to serve court-issued warrants.”

The warrant sweep, dubbed “Operation May Sweeps,” took place in the early morning hours of May 16, resulting in fourteen arrests across the City of Cambridge with charges ranging from Assault & Battery to Receiving Stolen Property Over $250, Larceny, and motor vehicle offenses.

One male was found to be in possession of heroin at the time of his arrest and was additionally charged with Unlawful Possession of a Class ‘A’ Substance.

This operation was undertaken as part of an overall crime prevention strategy as well as the department’s duty to the courts to serve outstanding arrest warrants whenever possible.
