The El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Warrants Section put together an operation called “Operation Cheers” that focused on arresting individuals wanted on alcohol-related warrants. Officials from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, El Paso Police Department, Tx DPS Troopers, El Paso County Constables, Socorro Police, Horizon Police Department and the El Paso District Attorney’s Office participated in this round up. The operation ran from May 27th through May 29th and yielded 40 arrests with bonds totaling over $415,000. Forty one alcohol related warrants were executed along with 16 class C warrants, 4 misdemeanor warrants, and 3 felony warrants.
According to Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, almost one out of every three major causes of death and injury on our roadways involve drunk driving. Two-thirds of the drunk driving problem comes from people who, before they kill or injure themselves or others, have yet to be arrested.
