Police Collect Thousands Of Dollars During Warrant Sweep

Lufkin police cleared about 200 warrants during last week's warrant sweep.

Close to two dozen people were arrested either at home or at work.  Those arrested included fugitives wanted for outstanding Class C misdemeanors, including traffic violations and public intoxication.

If you have an outstanding warrant and you didn't get caught this time around, don't get comfortable.  There'll be another warrant sweep in Lufkin next month.

Lufkin police collected $61,000 last week in unpaid warrant fines and fees. They took 22 people to jail.
