Warrant Round-Up: Donating Canned Foods Can Waive Warrant Fee

UPDATED: Feb 6th – 10:30am

The City of Dallas wants you to take care of your warrants. If you have a Dallas Class C Misdemeanor warrant the city’s offering a discount on your warrant fees, with a few cans. They’ve turned their Warrant Round Up into a food drive.  According to the Marshal’s Office, they want to encourage individuals and businesses who have outstanding issues in city of Dallas Municipal Courts to resolve them during this period. The Marshal’s Office also added, “If you are unable to pay a fine in full, appear at the Dallas Municipal Court to request alternative payment options or contact the court for additional information. Defendants coming to Court wanting to resolve their citations will NOT be arrested for outstanding warrants or outstanding citations”. Find out more about the program here: City of Dallas
