City of Brownfield Municipal Judge Ken Cole told TownTalk that a statewide warrant roundup will begin on March 2nd. “If you have any outstanding tickets or warrants, anywhere in the state, now is the time to take care of these.”
This statewide roundup will attempt to get outstanding warrants off the books. The Great Texas Warrant Roundup is a coordinated statewide warrant enforcement effort to find and then arrest anyone with an outstanding warrant that has been issued as a result of not paying or resolving past due traffic tickets with any court in Texas.
Judge Cole stated, “If you have an outstanding warrant, you need to be proactive with this. Come by my office and make arrangements to take care of this. We will work with you and do the best we can within the limits of the options of the warrant.”
Judge Cole strongly urges people to pay attention to this information and take care of these warrants. “We don’t want to send officers to arrest you at home in front of your kids or at your workplace. Please, please come in and let us work this out with you.”
With this being income tax refund season, Cole felt that maybe some people would be more able to take care of fines at this time.
According to information from the Great Texas Warrant Roundup, “You may be arrested in your home, place of business, or anywhere that you may be found. Your car may be impounded if you are stopped and arrested while driving, incurring tow and storage charges.”
