Saturation in South End of County Leads to 17 Arrested

FORT PAYNE, Ala. On Wednesday, April 21st, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies, Investigators, Narcotics and Interdiction Unit as well as Crossville Police Department conducted a saturation patrol across the South end of the county, with Kilpatrick being our primary focus.  There were 17 total arrests made.  Three of those arrests were for outstanding warrants with outside agencies.  Saturation patrols can help lower crime rate, influence driving behavior to reduce traffic accidents and often times helps in the apprehension of individuals that have outstanding warrants.

DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: “Another job well done by our guys and girls and the other agencies that helped. I am proud of all the dedicated, selfless law enforcement we have working in this county to keep our citizens safe.”

“God Bless!” Concluded Sheriff Welden.
