DELLWOOD (AP) - The mayor of Dellwood said he's ordering the municipal court to dismiss all pending traffic cases before April 2012, when the St. Louis County Police Department began taking over patrols in the eastern Missouri city.

He tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, any arrest warrants for failing to appear in court also will be canceled.

The pardons will take effect on March 20. He said traffic tickets written by the now defunct Dellwood Police Department were difficult to prosecute.

The city's Board of Aldermen voted in April 2012 voted to dissolve its police department.

The move came after a county police audit found more than 120 cases between 2009 and 2011 where casework had inexplicably stopped.
