HARRISONVILLE — A western Missouri sheriff is hoping to clear up some old business with an amnesty program later this month.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office currently holds about 3,400 active criminal warrants issued by the courts. The county will hold an amnesty program on old criminal and traffic warrants from June 18 through June 22.

The amnesty will be offered only for Division III of the Cass County Court.

Officials hope the program will reduce the number of outstanding arrest warrants. The sheriff's department says it's also a chance for people to resolve any pending criminal or potential criminal matters.
