The Great Texas Warrant Roundup is in Full Swing in Collin County by Bo Kalabus

The eyes of Texas are upon you this month—especially if you have an outstanding warrant. According to officials, anyone with an outstanding citation will be arrested starting March 6, 2011.

More than 250 law enforcement agencies across the state are participating in the roundup, which is believed to be the largest of its kind. The warrant roundup has been designed to target those with outstanding warrants for minor and major infractions such as traffic, parking, city ordinance, penal code and higher charges. The roundup lasts through March 20, 2011 and police say they’ll come to your home or work, both day and night, to arrest you and bring you to jail.

Folks who wish to resolve their Plano warrant(s) prior to the roundup are directed by the police spokesman to contact the municipal court at 972-941-2199 or visit the court’s Web site for additional information and to avoid being arrested. Also, the Clerk of Courts office in the municipal court, located at 900 East 15th Street, will stay open until 8:30 p.m. on Friday, March 12, to accept payments.

Those with warrants in McKinney who want to pay their citations and avoid arrest during the warrant roundup are directed to contact the McKinney Municipal Court at 972-547-7679, or appear in person Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Thursdays 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. at 130 S. Chestnut St., McKinney. They can also pay online at www.mckinneytexas.org by clicking on the “I Want To” tab.

A listing of all defendants with outstanding arrest warrants from the Plano Municipal Court is available at: http://www.plano.gov/Departments/Police/Pages/warrants.aspx.
The list consists of the names of more than 10,000 defendants. The site also includes information on how to clear warrants, including credit card payment via the Web or by telephone, which makes personal appearance in the court unnecessary. Those with warrants can also make their payments through www.governmentpayment.com
