NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) – Look out. Nacogdoches police are going after people who have outstanding warrants. Sergeant Greg Sowell said their preference would be for folks to take care of these matters ahead of time.
The citywide warrant sweep begins on Monday, August 2. Police will concentrate on outstanding warrants issued from Nacogdoches Municipal Court and will be serving warrants at homes and businesses.
"It is my strong suggestion that people who have warrants or unpaid fines contact the Municipal Court as soon as possible", Sgt. Sowell said.
"By taking care of these matters at the Court, a person can avoid the embarrassment of being arrested on the job or in the presence of family and friends".
Persons with municipal warrants also run the risk of being arrested on a routine traffic stop, he added.
The Nacogdoches Municipal Court is located at 217 West Hospital Street in Nacogdoches. Their hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. They may be reached by telephone at 936-559-2641.
