CLAREMORE — Craig, Mayes and Rogers county officials have issued a 30-day grace period for people with outstanding warrants on bogus checks.

“It is a chance for people to resolve their cases and avoid many of the associated penalties,” said District Attorney Janice Steidley.

Records show there are currently 514 outstanding bogus check cases in Rogers County, 168 in Mayes County and 57 in Craig County.

A list of people with outstanding warrants will be published in newspapers throughout the district in two weeks to inform people who have a warrant for their arrest related to a bogus check and allow them to come in and resolve their case, according to Steidley.

People who know they passed a bogus check can avoid having case information published by contacting the District 12 Bogus Check Division at (918) 923-4960 ext. 2 to pay off their debt prior to Feb. 14.

The period to resolve bogus check cases with reduced penalties began Friday and ends Feb. 28.
