Moriarty magistrate court offers 'safe surrender' opportunity on Saturday

Updated Feb. 15 at 4 p.m.

The New Mexico Administrative Office of the Courts will allow anyone with an outstanding magistrate court warrant on Saturday (Feb. 16) to appear voluntarily before a judge to have their warrant cancelled in order to avoid potential jail time and resolve outstanding issues with their case.

Only one magistrate court will be available for people to turn themselves in, located at 1100 Route 66 in Moriarty, New Mexico. The court will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Called "Operation Safe Surrender," participating in the one-day-only opportunity does not provide amnesty, "but does provide wanted persons an opportunity to avoid jail by appearing before a judge to request a new payment plan, a new court date or any other information required to come into compliance with the court order," according to a press release from the AOC.

To check if you have an outstanding warrant or for other information, you can call a toll-free warrant hotline at (855) 268-7804 or visit nmcourts.gov.
