Law enforcement in Marshall County round-up people with outstanding warrants

Multiple law enforcement agencies in Marshall County joined forces Wednesday for a county-wide warrant round-up.

Officers set out looking to serve 75 to 100 outstanding warrants, which is just a tiny fraction of the existing warrants.

"In Boaz alone there's about 2 million dollars in fines that are outstanding on warrants that need to be served," said Boaz Police Chief Terry Davis.

"We have a little over 4,000 warrants, misdemeanor warrants, at the Albertville Police department. And unfortunately, often times we don't have the man power to you know, just start serving them," said Albertville Police Chief Benny Womack.

All of the warrants are for various misdemeanors ranging from failure to appear to writing a worthless check.

Police say it's time for people to pay for what they've done. 

"If you think you've got a warrant, call, come by. You need to take care of them. Really right now we're not giving an amnesty period. If you've got an outstanding warrant in Boaz, you can expect a knock on your door," said Boaz Police Chief Terry Davis.

This will be an on-going effort. At least 11 people were arrested on Wednesday.
