Longview Police Department warrant sweep nets $425,000
Longview — The Longview Police Department’s 2013 warrant sweep collected more than $425,000 in fees owed to the city — bringing in almost $160,000 more than in 2012, police officials said Thursday.

LPD officials are calling the recent warrant sweep a success.
