January 15, 2020 | Courts|Featured|Headlines|Police

There is a long list of outstanding warrants in Kay County.

District Attorney Brian Hermanson encourages those with warrants to resolve the issue.

“The resolving of any warrants as soon as possible is something that everyone should do,” he said. “If you came in contact with law enforcement, whether for a speeding ticket, a faulty light, or for any other reason, the officer or deputy will check to see if you have an outstanding warrant. If you do you will be taken to jail immediately and held until either bond is posted or until you can appear before a judge. If you arrested on a weekend that might mean you spend the weekend in jail. Please take care of any outstanding warrant immediately. After you are arrested is way too late.”
