Reserve deputies responsible for 16 weekend arrests

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

Deputies arrested 16 people over the weekend during a warrant roundup conducted by the Harris County Sheriff's Office Reserve Command.

The roundup, which targeted suspects for whom felony warrants were issued, led to arrests in 13 felony cases and three misdemeanor cases.

The arrest warrants were issued after the defendants had not been taken into custody when they were charged with the crimes.

More than 200 certified peace officers act as volunteers in the HCSO Reserve Command, which is directed by Chief Kevin Maples. The officers are trained and legally authorized like their full-time deputy counterparts, but they are not paid for their services.

Reserve deputies work as part of patrols, criminal warrants, fugitive transports, and tactical medicine incidents.
