Fine dodgers facing arrest

Have your say

FINE dodgers who try to avoid paying court fees in South Yorkshire are being told to pay up risk arrest.

A month-long campaign by HM Courts Service will see police carry out a series of blitzes on offenders’ homes to collect unpaid fines.

Bailiffs will also be issued with warrants to confiscate property and those who refuse to co-operate will be arrested. Court time will be set aside to deal specifically with them.

The same Operation Crackdown last year saw 9,425 warrants executed.
