Law enforcement officers arrest 43 in Fairfield
FAIRFIELD — Fairfield police have wrapped up an operation conducted with the U.S. Marshals Service and other law enforcement agencies that resulted in 43 arrests.
The operation took place one day last week and two days this week. Arrests involved allegations that included outstanding warrants, parole and probation violations, weapons offenses and controlled substance violations.
Fairfield police work with the U.S. Marshals Service on a regular basis when looking for wanted people, Fairfield Police Capt. Joe Allio said. The three-day operation grew out of conversations between the two parties after smaller operations earlier this year, he said.
The three-page, single-spaced press release that came out Thursday night has details on 10 arrests out of the 43, as well as seven photographs. Allio said police wanted to give residents the highlights of what had happened as soon as possible, since people have seen the U.S. Marshals truck in town. He mentioned the logistical problems of detailing all 43 arrests in the press release.
