Lufkin Municipal Court and Lufkin Police Department participating in the Great Texas Warrant Roundup 2015

 

The City of Lufkin Municipal Court and the Lufkin Police Department are participating in the Annual Great Texas Warrant Round Up. Numerous counties, justices of the peace, and municipalities of all sizes will participate in the roundup statewide.

 

The roundup targets thousands of defendants with outstanding warrants for traffic, parking, city ordinance, penal code violations and higher charges 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. The warrant sweep will be conducted from Saturday, March 7, 2015 through Sunday, March 15, 2015. The Lufkin Municipal Court will be open the following dates and times: Saturday, March 7th, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., and Monday, March 9th, through Wednesday, March 11th, from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m., Thursday, March 12th, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Friday, March 13th, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

 

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.
