Active warrants now searchable on Collin County website
(McKinney, TX) -- The Collin County Sheriff’s Office is now posting a searchable list of more than 35,000 active warrants on the county’s web page. The list covers active arrest warrants from Class-C misdemeanors to First-degree felonies, and includes fine amounts, bond amounts and the name, physical description and the last known address of an offender. The web page also has instructions posted on how those on the list can pay off late fines and fees, plus ways to alert authorities on where to find those being sought.
The Active Warrants List includes offenses from fishing without a license to unpaid traffic tickets to burglary and other felony crimes that have been committed in Collin County. Late last year, the Collin County Sheriff’s Office began posting the county jail’s Current Inmate List online as well. Both can be reached from the Sheriff’s Office section of the website, www.collincountytx.gov/sheriff/.
Sheriff Terry G. Box said: “The Internet is an important source of information in today’s world, and this addition to our website will allow the public access to up-to-the-minute critical information.”
