FROM STAFF REPORTS
Police and city marshals have extended a grace period for residents who have outstanding arrest warrants stemming from violations prosecuted in San Marcos Municipal Court.
The amnesty period had been scheduled to end today ahead of an imminent statewide warrant roundup involving dozens of law enforcement agencies. Because the city’s website was inoperable for most of this week due to threatened security breaches, local officials are giving residents three additional days to pay fines.
The extension applies only to warrants issued by the municipal judge, not to those originating from the more than 300 other jurisdictions participating in the roundup.
The municipal court accepts cash, checks, money orders, cashier’s checks and major credit cards. People can make credit card payments directly to the court by phone during regular court hours or 24 hours a day online here. (The court bureau code for Internet payments is 3290449).
