CLINTON- People who skipped court and skipped a second chance at getting issues cleared with the town's police department are being arrested.

Police Chief Fred Dunn arrested people Monday, the second day of busts related to his amnesty program.  Saturday morning he started his round up.

"When we strike, we're going to all strike at once," Dunn promised in an interview with WBRZ News 2 Friday.

Three days later, he has arrested about 37 people.  Twenty-seven beginning at 12:01 a.m. Saturday and ten more Monday.

The chief said there are about 230 warrants that are outstanding and wants to get everyone who has refused to pay their fines.

"It may not finish until I get every last one of them off the street," Dunn said.

He is planning another sweep later this week.
