Seeking to tamp down crime, Baltimore Police arrested 270 people in a five-day warrant initiative targeting suspects being sought in domestic violence and robbery cases.
Another 50 suspects already incarcerated were also served with warrants, officials said.
The warrant sweep took place between Oct. 22 and 26, said spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. Police prioritized warrants for suspects being sought in domestic violence and robbery cases, as well as warrants for suspects with histories of violent crimes.
"The results of this warrant effort are a testament to the hard working men and women of the Baltimore Police Department who put their lives on the line each day to make this city safer,” Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said in a statement. “We will continue our focus on improving public safety andtargeting individuals who are responsible for committing acts of violence in our community."
