Instead of waiting for the long arm of the law to find them, two Auburn men took matters into their own hands and asked to be arrested.
Police were called to a Carter Road address after Raymond Allen Barrett, 49, of 21 Ninth Street in Auburn, informed a female acquaintance that he had an outstanding warrant for probation violation and wanted to turn himself in to police.
The woman refused to let the man walk to the police station because he was too intoxicated, but did call police so that they could come get the man.
Another man, Joseph Thomas Harrison, 46, of lot 124 Carter Road in Auburn, also decided to turn himself in to authorities last week.
Harrison walked into the Auburn Police Department and asked that someone check to see if he had an outstanding warrant.
A check of Harrison’s identification showed he had an outstanding warrant from Walton County for probation violation.

•Duwayne Edward Kitchen Jr., 33, 112 Chippewa Run, Auburn, abandonment of dependent child and contempt of court.
