San Marcos Police, Marshals To Join Warrant Roundup
Great Texas Warrant Roundup 2015
San Marcos Police and the City Marshal’s Office are joining more than 300 law enforcement agencies across Texas for a warrant roundup beginning March 7, 2015.
Defendants with outstanding cases with the court are urged to contact the San Marcos Municipal Court immediately to avoid arrest. An amnesty period of Feb. 23-March 6 has been established for people who have warrants and wish to pay any tickets, fines or other outstanding fees they owe.
“Warrants don’t go away unless you take steps to address them,” said Deputy Marshal Tracy Balusek. “If you have a warrant, contact the San Marcos Municipal Court to make arrangements for payment.”
The San Marcos Municipal Court of Record web site has a list of people with active warrants and a list of people who have unresolved cases needing immediate attention. To view lists visit www.sanmarcostx.gov/court
The City Marshal’s office has scheduled a courtesy call night on March 3 with the assistance of the Citizens Police Academy alumni. These calls will direct people with warrants to contact the court to address their cases. At no time will they request or demand payment over the phone.
