Time is running out for residents with arrest warrants and fines to avoid a trip to the slammer, as local law enforcement and courts get ready to participate in a warrant roundup Saturday.
Part of a statewide effort to help municipalities and other government agencies tackle the growing number of arrest warrants being issued, Big Spring Municipal Judge Tim Green said every effort has been made to contact those with warrants and get the matters cleared up before the handcuffs get slapped on.
The Big Spring Police Department reported the following activity between 7 a.m. Thursday and 7 a.m. today:
â€˘ FRANKIE LOPEZ JUAREZ, 43, of 1008 N.W. Second St., was arrested Thursday on a warrant for criminal mischief.
â€˘ NAOMI RENEE VILLA, 25, of 2508 Langley, was arrested Thursday on a warrant for assault by contact.
