Warrant Roundup 2016 – Get Your Fines Paid or They Will Be Coming For You
It's that time of year again. If you know or might a warrant out through the City of Amarillo Municipal Court, it is time to take care of it, or you could find yourself in a pair of handcuffs.
If you do have an outstanding warrant through the Amarillo Municipal Court you will receive a notice postcard in the mail. If you receive one of these postcards you need to go by the Amarillo Municipal Court and clear it up. The postcards will look like these:
If you are not sure if you have a warrant or not you can check their website here:
If you do have a warrant, then you can stop by the Municipal Court to take care of it. They are open Monday - Friday, 8a-5p. The court remains open until 7pm on Thursdays.
If your warrant is for a traffic citation, then you can pay that fine online, if it is for something different you will need to pay at the court.
Last year several scams were reported in other areas of Texas where people are posing as police, court, or city employees and are contacting people with outstanding warrants to receive payment over the phone. By doing this they are scamming people out of their bank, credit card and other financial information. These scams still exist today. Please note that the City of Amarillo or the Amarillo Police Department will not ever ask you for your financial information over the phone. They do not take payment arrangements or allow you to pay ticket or warrant charges by phone. If you receive a phone call like this, just hang up the phone.
If you have questions about outstanding warrants, call the Municipal Court at 378-9342.
Other law enforcement in Amarillo are also taking part in the Warrant Round Up. They include the Randall and Potter County Sheriff Departments
