Lufkin, Texas (KETK) —
The City of Lufkin Municipal Court and the Lufkin Police Department are participating in the Annual Great Texas Warrant Round Up.
Numerous counties, justices of the peace, and municipalities of all sizes will participate in the roundup statewide.
The roundup targets thousands of defendants with outstanding warrants for traffic, parking, city ordinance, penal code violations and higher charges from more than 280 participating jurisdictions.
Officers from the Lufkin City Marshal’s Office will team up with the Lufkin Police Department to go out and serve as many warrants as possible. The warrant sweep will be conducted from Saturday, March 1, 2014 through Sunday, March 9th, 2014. The Lufkin Municipal Court will be open the following dates and times: Saturday, March 1, 2014, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., and Monday, March 3, 2014 through Wednesday, March 5, from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m., Thursday, March 6, 2014, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Friday, March 7, 2014, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Individuals with outstanding warrants may voluntarily appear, in person, at the Lufkin Municipal Court, 300 E. Shepherd Ave., if they wish to avoid the embarrassment of being arrested at home, work, or any other place that they may be found. Those who voluntarily appear will not be arrested. However, if any defendants fail to voluntarily appear, they will be arrested. In the event that a defendant is arrested while driving, his/her car may be impounded and incur additional towing and storage fees.
