Dallas deputies' Valentine's Day roundup yields 22 arrests

Posted: Updated:

Dallas County Sheriff's Deputies were out early Friday morning, Valentine's Day, to arrest suspects wanted for domestic violence.

"We identified what we thought were going to be some of the most violent offenders," said Captain Mark Howard. "I think we're working off about 230 warrants this morning."

Seventeen two-man squads tracked by GPS spread across the county, delivering warrants and delivering the wanted to jail.

The team's first warrant was for a man who was arrested and violated his probation, but he had moved.

Deputies moved on to a second address and finally a third before finding their man hiding in a closet and arresting him.

"[He] got probation violation for family violence," said Howard. The suspect also reportedly has a history of assaults, including against police.

The operation was orchestrated from the department's mobile command unit. Those arrested will spend Valentine's Day weekend at Lew Sterrett Jail.

In all, 22 people were arrested in the operation.

At one house, police seized three five-gallon buckets of crack cocaine, marijuana, and guns.
