Avoid Getting Caught in the Warrant Roundup
Search Texas Warrants State-Wide
Beginning in February, U.S. Marshals and local law enforcement agencies throughout the state of Texas will kick off a massive effort known as the Texas Warrant Roundup to collect debt owed on outstanding warrants.
The Texas Warrant Roundup involves more than 260 jurisdictions state-wide. In 2011 alone, 4,110 arrest were made and 29, 847 warrants cleared in the city of Houston. If you think you have a warrant in your name, find out for sure. Don't risk being arrested once the Texas Roundup starts.
The state of Texas allows for a grace period before the Warrant Roundup strikes. Any citizen of Texas may come forward to square their debt and pay their fines without further penalties. But, once the roundup starts you can be arrested at any time or any place; including your home, at work or school. It's almost impossible to hide from the police since they are equipped with special license plate scanning devices in their cruisers to easily check plates and find out if you're on the warrant list. If you have outstanding warrant in Texas, it's strongly advised to contact the local authorities and straighten out the warrant before the grace period ends.
By the end of the Great Texas Roundup in March, thousands of civilians in Texas will have either been arrested or paid millions of dollars in fines. Avoid an embarrassing arrest by finding out if you have a warrant in your name. Begin your search for free by typing your name in the search box above and you're on your way to finding out.
What To Do If Your Name is On the Warrant List
The best thing to do if you're on the warrant list is to come forward and satisfy the debt as soon as possible to clear your name. It's also advised to contact an attorney to act on your behalf. An attorney can help you post a bond to suspend the arrest warrant which sends your case back before a jury to be decided. If you've forgotten to pay a ticket or appear for a court date, you may have an outstanding warrant in your name. Note, in addition to risking arrest and jail time, anyone with an unpaid fine or warrant during the Texas Warrant Roundup a hold can be placed on the renewal of their vehicle registration until the warrant is resolved.
Know Your Your Legal Rights As A U.S. Citizen
If The Police Want To Search You
Can The Police Search me without a Search Warrant?
If you're stopped by the police and they haven't yet arrested you or read you your legal rights, but have failed to ask for the right to search you or your possessions, you have the right to refuse a search under your 4th amendment rights.
If the police lawfully arrest you or you have an outstanding warrant, they are then allowed to search you and/or your belongings for evidence without a search warrant. This is known as wingspan. An example of this may include searching the glove box of your car or private residence.
Search Warrants: Search Warrants must be issued by a judge in order to be legal. Only a judge can authorize law enforcement agencies to search for a specific person or property based on evidence of a crime. For this reason, a search warrant must be used within a specific period of time. If a
search warrant is not executed within the specified time frame it expires. However, If the police believe that someone's life is being threatened or endangered and have probable cause a search warrant is not needed.
