GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- Hot checks are costing businesses hundreds of thousands of dollars every year, and that's especially true in Grayson County. Now law enforcement is cracking down on offenders who aren't paying up.

The Grayson County District Attorney’s Office says it will team up with officers who will round up offenders in Sherman, Denison, and Van Alstyne.

District Attorney Joe Brown says anyone with an outstanding check will get a knock on the door beginning August 13TH.

Brown says people can resolve any bad checks before the beginning of august by contacting his office. He says with all the court fees and fines, it's wiser to pay now and not face the added costs.

Brown says Grayson County is the one of the leading counties in Texas for hot check offenders, who may receive an unpleasant surprise if they don't pay up soon.

"They’re going to arrest them early in the morning at their job,” says Brown.

Many of the merchants in Texoma say they do not accept checks at all because they have had problems in the past with people writing them bad checks.

    I know where you can find one of the top ten most wanted in Grayson County. Her name is Cathy Copeland and she lives in Tulsa and she works at UPS.
