A Woodstock police officer transports a felony suspect to the McHenry County Adult Correctional Facility Thursday September 26, 2013. Most cars used to make the arrests like these are unmarked, and a special car is used to transport suspects to jail. At least 35 officers from Woodstock, Lake in the Hills, McHenry Sheriffs department, and the U.S. Marshall's Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force went to 20 different locations around McHenry county Thursday morning to arrest suspects with drug-related felony warrants. These types of criminal roundups are clustered together in order to use these resources in a cost effective manner. Today, 16 of the 20 warrants ended in arrests, and at least 10 will now have additional charges based on the recovery of paraphernalia and other charges.
