How to do a warrant search

You'll need to visit them in person and ask to view their list of wanted people and then inquire if there is a pending arrest order against a certain individual. They will usually share with you relevant information unless the case in question is under ongoing investigation which demands confidentiality or if the case involves a minor.

Take into account that each search costs $25.00 and requires the full name and date of birth of the person you inquire about.
