Central Texas — This weekend, local police agencies across the state are participating in the annual Great Texas Roundup.
Starting Saturday, Waco Police and many other Central Texas' police departments will be hunting down those who have not paid up on local parking and speeding tickets, as well as Class C Misdemeanors.
Police are urging those who may have outstanding warrants to come pay a fine and save yourself the embarrassment of getting arrested at home or even at work.
“It’s much easier to go to the courts and make arrangements and do it that way than it is to be in jail and have to have somebody come down and pay the entire thing in full before you can even get out," said Sgt. Patrick Swanton of Waco PD.
