Law enforcement agencies in Houston and across the state want to put out an important message -- take care of outstanding warrants soon or they will come after you. Local law agencies and judges Friday announced the 2011 Great Texas Warrant Roundup. People with outstanding warrants have two weeks to take care of them before officers start tracking them down.

"Give citizens plenty of notice that if they have outstanding delinquent cases now is the time to show up, pay up and clear those warrants in order to avoid the embarrassment of arrest at their homes, places of employment or on the roads," said Judge Barbara Hartle of the Houston Municipal Courts.
