MOUNT CLEMENS (WWJ) – A criminal sweep called “Operation SafeGuard” in Macomb County has resulted in the arrest of close to 60 felons. A task force involving several law enforcement agencies has been rounding up felons for the past few days.

“As of 12:30 (p.m. Thursday), and the operation is still going on, for the three-day total we have made 57 arrests,” said Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham.

“These arrests are probation violations such as child molestation, CSC (criminal sexual contact) second degree with a child under 13, stalking a minor child, assault with a dangerous weapon, drug offenses, aggravated stalking,” Wickersham said.

The operation targeted 300 such individuals.

Wickersham said those not arrested this time around are being warned that they will be caught.
