Warrant roundup March 2
San Marcos Police and the city marshal’s office will join more than 300 law enforcement agencies across Texas for a warrant roundup beginning March 2.
Defendants with outstanding warrants for traffic violations, penal code or city ordinance violations, failure to appear or failure to comply with court orders are urged to contact the San Marcos Municipal Court immediately to avoid arrest at home, work or school.
The San Marcos Municipal Court of Record website has a list of people with active warrants and a list of people who have unresolved cases needing immediate attention ready to be placed in warrant status at www.sanmarcostx.gov/court
Defendants who have not resolved their outstanding fines and fees or secured a court date with the San Marcos Municipal Court face:
• Being arrested at home, on the work site, or
• Being denied driver’s license renewal
• Having additional charges filed
• Having additional fees charged by a collections agency
“The San Marcos Municipal Court has begun the process of contracting with a collection agency for the collection of delinquent fines and fees,” Court Administrator Susie Garcia said. “Defen-dants can expect an increase of 30 percent in the fine amounts if their cases are referred to collections.”
The municipal court may be reached by telephone at 393-8190, by fax at (855) 246-9121 and email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
