Sweep of Santa Rosa transient camps nets six arrests

Santa Rose police conducted a sweep of 45 transient camps across the city early Wednesday morning in a search for parole violators and people with arrest warrants.

The search was conducted because the police department learned that about 40 people with felony arrest warrants in the area are listed as transients, and that some were believed to be living in the camps, according to a news release.

The searches yielded six arrests. Four adults were arrested on warrants or for violations of parole or probation, and on drug charges. The other two were arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs and paraphernalia. An additional 14 people were cited for city ordinance violations and released.
