Durant Warrant Round-Up

Posted: Updated:

DURANT, OK -- The City of Durant is offering a break for anyone with an active city warrant. City warrants include traffic citations, public intoxications or misdemeanor shoplifting.

Starting next Friday, October 1st, if you have an outstanding warrant you can come in and pay the full balance of fines or sign up for community service labor hours without any other penalities.

It's all part of the warrant amnesty program. Carrie Wyrick of the Durant Police Department says, "This program is basically to keep people from being taken to jail on city warrants over this three week period. It gives people a chance to come in and make some type of arrangements whether it be to pay the fine, to set up community service, or to get a 30 day extension on your fine amount."

The City of Durant currently has over 1,400 outstanding warrants totaling over $353,000 in fines.
