CUERO - Operation Fall Clean Up netted 20 arrests as the Cuero Police Department conducted a warrant round-up Wednesday and Thursday.

The operation was the result of a year-long special crimes investigation by the Cuero Police Department, Police Chief Chris Hernandez said in a news release.

The round up, conducted mainly during the late evening hours on Wednesday, took nine hours. Two additional arrests were made Thursday. Those arrested ranged in age from 18 to 54. All were from Cuero except two, one from Victoria and one from Yorktown.

"These efforts have been ongoing in order to achieve the goal of a crime-free Cuero," Hernandez said in a news release.

The crimes ranged from delivery of prescription narcotics, simulated crack cocaine, to actual crack cocaine, and delivery of marijuana to a child. The investigation also included various crimes against people such as child endangerment and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to the release. Six vehicles were also seized.

"I encourage those with active warrants to turn themselves in at the Cuero Police Department or contact the Cuero Police Departments investigations division. We will continue to seek those with outstanding warrants," the chief said.
