Brandon police arrested four people with outstanding warrants on Tuesday, took a man to the drunk tank, and responded to a call that ended up with a woman who required mental health care.

They said Wednseday morning that, in the previous 24 hours, they had found two people wanted on arrest warrants, and two more had turned themselves in.

One, a male youth, turned himself in after his probation officer informed him that a warrant had been issued for failing to comply with his probation order. He has since been released from custody, but is to appear in court in May.

A female youth who called police herself was the one who ended up in cuffs after officers who responded found that she had a warrant out for her arrest. She too has since been released from custody, with a court date in the future.

A man, 21, showed up at the police station to turn himself in. He said he had missed a court date and figured that there would be an arrest warrant for him. Police confirmed the warrant and held him overnight to appear in court this morning.

Then, police checked a pedestrian just before midnight and the girl turned out to have an outstanding arrest warrant for theft under $5,000, as well as for failing to attend for identification, failing to attend court, and failing to comply with probation. She was held overnight at the Brandon Correctional Center to also appear in court today.

Police also took a 45-year-old man to the drunk tank after he was involved in some kind of disturbance at at motel in the 2700-block of Victoria Avenue. He was to be released once sober.

And finally, a 42-year-old woman called police on her cell phone. Although dispatchers could figure out the reason for the call, she sounded despondent and would not reveal her location. Officers were able to obtain a general location from her cellphone signal and then located the woman, who was subsequently taken to receive mental health care.
