Lufkin Getting Ready to Take Part in Warrant Round Up
Lufkin residents who have outstanding warrants for traffic, parking, city ordinance, penal code violations and higher charges may want to get those taking care of, and the sooner the better.
According to a press release, The City of Lufkin Municipal Court and the Lufkin Police Department will be participating in the Annual Great Texas Warrant Round Up. The warrant sweep will be conducted from Saturday, March 5, 2016 through Sunday, March 13, 2016.
More than 300 law enforcement agencies across Texas will be concentrating their efforts to address non-compliance with court orders. The roundup targets thousands of defendants with outstanding warrants from participating jurisdictions. It is believed to be the largest joint operation of its kind with arrests expected to continue for several days. 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.
Affected persons are urged to contact the Lufkin Municipal Court during the next two weeks to dispose of their cases voluntarily to avoid the inconvenience and embarrassment of arrest at home or work in front of family, friends or co-workers. Those individuals with outstanding warrants may voluntarily appear, in person, at the Lufkin Municipal Court, 222 E. Shepherd Ave. 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.
There are several options to pay any outstanding warrants and fees. You may pay the fine in full in the following manner: (1) with a credit card online at http://cityoflufkin.com/click2gov.htm; (2) by mail - via cashier check or money order only; (3) or in person at the Lufkin Municipal Court by cash, cashier’s check, money order, or credit card. No personal checks will be accepted. No credit cards will be accepted if you arrested.
To find out if you have outstanding warrants with the City of Lufkin, please call the Municipal Court at (936) 633-0315.
