A Red Deer RCMP crackdown on outstanding warrants landed 14 people in jail and recouped more than $33,000 in unpaid fines.

Those were the results of just the first two weeks of a month-long blitz, which is part of a provincial warrant initiative to clear the books of some of the outstanding 20,000 federal and provincial statute warrants, says a release from Const. Sabrina Grunow.

In Red Deer, 1,800 warrants were outstanding. RCMP executed 257 warrants from Sept. 1 to 15, including 125 Criminal Code offences and 132 provincial offences.

Fourteen people unable to pay their fines wound up in a jail cell. The total amount owed was $15,975.31. Thirty warrants were dealt with by fine payments totalling $33,063.20.

RCMP are alerting residents with warrants that they should head down to the detachment to clear up the matter. Proper identification is required when making inquiries.

The warrant initiative continues.
