It turned out to be a hectic Thursday evening for Dunkirk police officers.
As part of a major street sweep, five arrests were made as city officers worked with members of the Chautauqua County Department of Probation and New York State Parole. Those picked up were wanted on outstanding warrants and were already on probation and parole.
Unfortunately, three of those arrested were back to their tricks - and illegal drug use.
For residents and officers, the sweep served a purpose. Those who have tested the law - and continue to do so - are on the radar.
