Applicants who are interested in Lake County arrest warrant searches can start with the office of the sheriff or the magistrate. These agencies play crucial roles in the issue of all judicial orders including active warrants. Also, cops are responsible for making all arrests in connection with judicial orders for detentions and otherwise.
So, they will have information on Lake County arrest records as well as outstanding warrants released by the local courts that are yet to be served. It should be understood at this point that all arrest warrants do not carry equal weight. Predictably, those that are issued in connection with serious felonies and gross misdemeanor are given the maximum attention.
Arrests are frequently made under such outstanding warrants within days or even hours of the order being issued. It should also be noted that misdemeanor arrest warrants typically carry a lot of restrictions. For example, they can only be served within the issuing county and at a certain time if police officers need to enter the home of the accused.
In striking contrast, active warrants which are linked to felonies can be executed in any place and at any odd time. Cops can also go outside the issuing county and state to serve these orders. That is not all; police officers from other areas of the country can also execute such outstanding warrants from Lake County. To find information on these orders, you can approach:
- The sheriff’s: 400 Sherman St, PO Box 229, Jackson, Minnesota 56143
- The magistrate’s: 601 3rd Ave, Two Harbors, MN 55616
- The county clerk’s: As above
