Texas warrant roundup starts March 5 in Tarrant County

The annual Great Texas Warrant Roundup kicks off on Saturday, March 5, when more than 300 law enforcement agencies across Texas will concentrate their efforts to address non-compliance with court orders.

For people who have outstanding warrants for unpaid fines or tickets, failure to resolve them may result in an arrest. A traffic stop for someone with an outstanding warrant could also result in vehicle impoundment, which would result in substantial towing and storage fees.

Anyone with an unpaid ticket is encouraged to voluntarily take care of the ticket—so that an arrest can be avoided. Appearing voluntarily at this time will not result in an arrest. For anyone who is unable to pay a ticket should contact the court to discuss a payment plan, community service, or other options.

The roundup ends March 15.
