Persons with outstanding warrants for minor felonies and/or misdemeanors here and Marion County will have a chance to have their warrants reviewed and potentially resolved instead of being arrested, today… during an event called Operation Safe Surrender. It’s a three-day event that got underway at 9 a.m. this morning and runs until 8 p.m. this evening at what organizers are calling a safe space… Messiah Missionary Baptist Church in the 5600 block of East 38th Street. This again is for persons with level 6 felonies and misdemeanors so you can get a fresh start. To see whether you have a case against you log on to mycase.in.gov. Look for a “w” by your name to see if there’s an active warrant.
