SUMMARY:

8 Suspects with Outstanding DUI Warrants
Caught in Rancho Cucamonga Police Department Sweep

Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Some people might think if they don’t show up for a court hearing, the police won’t have the manpower to find them. If your violation is a DUI, don’t count on it. On
June 23, 2018, the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department along with San Bernardino County Probation Department DUI Unit, fanned out into neighborhoods with dozens of outstanding arrest warrants in search of high-risk DUI offenders. Deputies and probation officers served 80 warrants and arrested eight offenders who either failed to show up for their court date or violated terms of their DUI probation.

“The best bet for anyone with a missed DUI court date is to go to court on their own now,” said Deputy A. Zapata. “If you don’t, that warrant isn’t going away.”

Those caught may face additional jail time for failing to appear in court or for violating probation. When family, friends, and co-workers find out, violators can also face personal embarrassment as they are lead away in handcuffs. Arrestees often end up missing work while sitting in jail.

Special DUI Warrant Service Operations along with regularly scheduled “High Visibility” DUI enforcement has a deterrent effect on those who disregard driving safety and abuse alcohol and drugs. Rancho Cucamonga PD places a high priority on lowering deaths and injury with the goal of reducing impaired drivers and heightened the awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Funding for the operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Report Drunk Drivers; Call 9-1-1!
