A spokeswoman announces the Great Texas Warrant Round-Up at a Feb. 10 news conference in Austin.

The Texas Attorney General's Fugitive Unit will be among more than 260 law enforcement agencies across the state that will participate in this year's Great Texas Warrant Round-Up.

Before the Round-Up begins on Feb. 25, individuals who want to avoid being arrested for outstanding municipal or justice arrest warrants should contact local law enforcement.

The sixth annual Great Texas Warrant Round-Up targets individuals across the state who have outstanding warrants for their arrest based upon the defendants' failure to pay fines for traffic tickets and other misdemeanor crimes. Municipal and justice court officials have mailed notices to individuals who have outstanding warrants.
