An active warrant for your arrest can be issued for a number of reasons ...
Bench warrants are routinely issued for failure to appear in court to face arrest charges or a similar proceeding such as a notice to appear due to a moving violation, or a misdemeanor.
A warrant for your arrest may also be signed by a judge if you are a suspect in a crime that is currently being investigated. This means police will be aware because your name will go directly into a nationwide computer system that serves the entire law enforcement community.
Breaking the Law is a Serious Matter Regardless of the Crime. In most cases, unless it’s a very serious offense, the police aren’t constantly looking around town in an effort to throw you in jail.
For a failure to appear in court charge on a relatively minor issue, they may not even come to your home or place of employment. However, that doesn’t mean you aren’t wanted by the law. Those minor issues you may have forgotten about could land you in jail. It’s time to dig up and become aware of your current criminal history and face any possible charges before you’re arrested without warning.
It is always easier to do a self arrest on your own time rather than the Sheriff’s.
What do you do if you think there is a warrant out for your arrest?
There are a number of different ways to find out if you have an arrest warrant.
The fastest and easiest would be to simply stop a deputy or officer and ask, but who is going to do that?
You should contact a licensed bail bondsman and explain your predicament and they will try and run your information.
There are many websites who claim to offer arrest warrant information including your local sheriff or police station website.Visit these websites and look in the navigation menu for anything resembling the following; records, warrants or most wanted. In these sections you will find a list of people law enforcement are looking for.
Even better a search form will be provided so you can look-up a name. Lake and Sumter County will not give individuals warrant information over the phone, nor do they have a warrant search site.
In Lake we will meet you at our bail bond office in Tavares, Run your name with the Sheriff, and proceed to do a walk-through at the jail.
