It's Amnesty Week before October warrant round-up


In October, the San Marcos Police and the City Marshall’s Office will conduct a round-up that most citizens would want to avoid.

The warrant round-up targets people with outstanding warrants for traffic violations, city ordinance violations and other misdemeanor charges filed at San Marcos Municipal Court.

People with outstanding warrants are urged to contact the court immediately to avoid getting arrested at home, work or school.

A one-week amnesty period from Sept. 28-Oct. 2 will allow persons with outstanding cases to appear before the judge without posting bond. The available court dates are Wednesday, Sept. 30, from 6-8 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 2, from 10 a.m.-noon and 2-4 p.m.

The Municipal Court is located on the second floor of the Municipal Building in the City Hall Complex at 630 East Hopkins Street. The customer service window is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. There are extended hours on Wednesday to 8 p.m.

“We urge anyone who has delinquent cases in San Marcos Municipal Court to contact the court to take care of the matter immediately,” said Rusty Grice, Deputy Marshal with the San Marcos Marshal’s office.

After the amnesty week, officers will begin actively searching for people with outstanding warrants.

There is a list of outstanding warrants in San Marcos on the Municipal Court website at After hours payment options are available on the court web site. The court telephone number is (512) 393-8190.

    Gotta love the freedom this State, this country offers. Manpower for misdemeanors cause Uncle Sam say you just gotta pay. Submit your will, submit your right to self determination to the state or we’ll knock down your door at night and put you in a prison that will inevitably lead to your being raped and/or assaulted. We’re gonna need more prisons…

    This program is like our modern tax day, the way it is handled many people are excited because they know they’re gonna get a check in the mail in the form of an income return from the government. But ask any one of these individuals how much they paid in total for the year into the system and you’ll get nothing but uhhh’s and ummmm’s. Sometimes it’s hard to see the wire when you’re concentrating on the worm.
