A four-day roundup of criminal suspects in Lexington resulted in 47 arrests of individuals with felony or misdemeanor warrants. The Lexington Police Department today announced the results of the crime reduction effort in collaboration with multiple local, state and federal partners.
Beginning Thursday, July 27 and running through Tuesday, August 2, multi-agency teams fanned out across Lexington to locate offenders with significant charges such as assault, wanton endangerment, sex crimes, trafficking in narcotics, high-dollar thefts, and probation violation for felony offenses.
