CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) — Residents in three northeast Oklahoma counties who have outstanding warrants on bogus checks have been given a 30-day grace period to pay what they owe.

The district attorney for the area says the reprieve is a chance for residents who live in Craig, Mayes and Rogers counties to resolve their cases and avoid extra penalties.

Residents will be allowed during the period to come in and pay off their bounced checks — plus costs— and have their cases dismissed. 

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

The grace period to resolve bogus check cases with reduced penalties ends Feb. 28.
