Nearly 90 People Wanted on Outstanding Warrants Surrender

 

More than 80 people turned themselves in to police as part of a Fugitive Safe Surrender event in Nashville.

The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1F9fFFf) reports the 86 people who surrendered at a local Baptist church during the Friday and Saturday event were named in a total of 133 outstanding warrants.

According to police, only five had to be detained: three for outstanding warrants in other counties, one on a felony drug conspiracy indictment, and another for domestic assault.

Officials say about 100 volunteers assisted in transforming the church into a courthouse with three courtrooms and offices for the district attorney and public defender.

In addition, a total of 61 firearms were turned in as part of a Gift Cards for Guns initiative at the church. People received $50 MAPCO gift cards in exchange for unwanted firearms.
