If you think you have an outstanding warrant, you might want to take care of it now, because the eyes of Texas are upon you.
Dozens of officers from various local law enforcement agencies stood together Friday to announce a state-wide warrant roundup.
According to officials, anyone with an outstanding citation will be arrested starting March 6.
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 is 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 and police say they'll come to your home or work, both day and night, to arrest you and bring you to jail.
Residents can go in person to resolve their cases beginning February 22. Outstanding cases that have been remitted to the court’s collection agency will not be eligible to have the warrant fee waived, even if the cases are paid in full.
Cases that have been remitted to the collection agency have an additional 30 percent fee added to the balance of the amount due. If the case has not been remitted to collections, it will be eligible to have the warrant fee waived only if the cases are paid in full.
