Annual Arrest-A-Friend event set for April 5

Published 12:00 am Thursday, February 28, 2013

Get ready to “Relay” the message – the Andalusia Police Department will host its fourth annual “Arrest A Friend” on April 5.

The event is one of the most attended Covington County Relay for Life fundraisers and will be featured again on the Court Square in Andalusia.

“Warrants” can be signed Mon., April 1, through April 4 at 4 p.m. at the APD, located at 102 Opp Avenue, and on April 5 on the Court Square the day of the event. Price per warrant is $2 and a minimum bond of $10 has been set. Maximum bond amounts are not set; however, it is asked that you only sign “warrants” for reasonable amounts. The event will run from 8 am until the last warrant is served that Friday.

Officers will pick up the “suspects” and transport them to the holding facility located on Court Square where they can bond out or sit in jail until they can collect the money needed for their bonds.

The city’s Relay team will also be holding their annual hamburger/hotdog cookout the same day.
