MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas—More than 100 law enforcement officials in Montgomery County were busy Wednesday night tracking down suspects in a massive warrant roundup.
Most of the suspects were wanted for crimes against children, and many others were wanted for immigration violations.
District Attorney Brett Ligon sent the officers out in full force after handing out nearly 200 packets for the wanted fugitives.
Once the packets were issued each agency broke into teams. Constable Don Chumley of the Precinct 1 Constable brought nine teams with him; Constable David Hill’s Office provided six teams, as did Montgomery County Precinct 4 Constable Rowdy Hayden.
Other agencies involved included, Conroe ISD Police, Stagecoach, Panorama Village, Willis, Patton Village, Oak Ridge, Shenandoah, Precinct 3 Constables, Precinct 2 Constables, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department and Conroe Police.
Federal I.C. E. officers also assisted in arrests due to legal status of some of the suspects being in the United States.
With several thousand warrants this roundup takes place several times a year. The warrants included the entire Montgomery County, and some parts of Harris and Grimes County.
