Columbia police crack down on unpaid fines

COLUMBIA, MS (WDAM) - The City of Columbia is waging war against unpaid fines.

The police department's Felony Apprehension Unit(FAU) spent the morning going door to door serving arrest warrants for those with outstanding fines.

Columbia has around $4 Millon in unpaid fines and now that the staff of the municipal court has reconciled the books, arrest warrants are being issued. Those with outstanding fines are urged to visit municipal court to pay or work out payment plans before there is knock at the door.
