Nacogdoches city and county law enforcement track down warrants

By Morgan Thomas - bio | email

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Its the Great Texas Warrant Round-Up and no one with an active warrant is safe.

Nacogdoches County and city law enforcement are hitting the streets to clear their books. Their effort is an attempt to bring closure to some of their thousands of active warrants.

They're encouraging folks with warrants to come into the Nacogdoches Municipal Court on their own accord. However, if you refuse, don't be surprised if an officer tracks you down at your job, your home or running errands.

Officer Jackson reminds everyone that warrants don't go away if you wait long enough.

"When I say these things don't go away - they don't go away. This municipal court alone has a balance of 15,000 warrants," said Ken Jackson, Nacogdoches Police Bailiff Officer.

This warrant round-up kicked off today, but law enforcement plans to continue their push until at least the 15th of March.
