McKinney law enforcement work to round-up warrant holders

Law enforcement in the city of McKinney began a crusade to target and arrest individuals with unpaid tickets and warrants during the statewide warrant roundup that began Feb. 19.

Those with outstanding warrants or citations are urged to take care of it as soon as possible to avoid arrest. The initiative in McKinney will primarily target outstanding class C warrants, although all warrants are subject to be served.

"Anyone with an outstanding warrant could be arrested at home, at work, or at school," said City Marshal Tim Rich in a news release. “We always encourage people to avoid the surprise and take care of their violations rather than face arrest.”

More than 300 agencies across Texas will be participating in the effort to arrest individuals with warrants. Agencies participating in the McKinney roundup include the McKinney Police Department, McKinney Marshal’s Office, McKinney Municipal Court and the McKinney Citizens on Patrol.
