BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The Baton Rouge City Jail will be open 24 hours a day for the next two weeks to house people with misdemeanor outstanding warrants.

Officials said anyone stopped in East Baton Rouge Parish found to have an outstanding warrant will be arrested.

Last week, lines wrapped around the building as people tried to take care of business they may have forgotten about.

Officials added this program provided big results last summer.
