McDonough Co. active warrant list open to public

      There are nearly 2,000 active arrest warrants in McDonough County.

      Sheriff Rick VanBrooker says that's a pretty normal number, but he hopes the public will help reduce it.

      The department has had a joint website with the Macomb Area Crime Stoppers since 2008.

      It recently added a tab to that website that allows the public to view all of the active arrest warrants in the county.

      "We're in the process of trying to clean up the number of warrants, trying to get the number reduced and this is just one phase that we're doing. We're hoping that the public will help us, maybe call with some times or maybe the person that's actually wanted sees their name and take of the warrant voluntarily," said Sheriff VanBrooker.
