The San Diego Sheriff's Department Lemon Grove Traffic Unit and Court Services Field Unit worked together Saturday to conduct an early morning warrant sweep in Lemon Grove.
Together they arrested 11 people on outstanding misdemeanor warrants and cited another five for moving violations. Warrants included driving under the influence, reckless driving and driving on a suspended license, according to a sheriff's release.
The focus, they said, was on DUI-related violations.
Two vehicles were also towed as a result of the sweep.
The operation was funded by the "STEP" grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the release said.
Sheriff's officials said those with outstanding warrants can turn themselves in Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at any sheriff's facility.
