People have many motivations for doing a Murray County, MN arrest warrant search. Perhaps it is due to involvement in something that occurred 5 or 10 years ago. In Murray County, there were over 650 crimes reported in one eight-year period starting at the beginning of the 2000s. While close to thirty of those crimes were violent, most were not. Perhaps you were involved in one of those crimes, and now, years later, you want to “set the record straight” and settle the matter. Part of what you should be thinking about is whether there is an active warrant for your arrest connected with your past activities.
You probably will not like the options available to you, but if you believe you have an outstanding warrant in your name in Murray County or elsewhere in Minnesota, you should go to law enforcement officers. Otherwise, you will need to worry about every traffic stop resulting in your arrest or about having a potential employer discover your past when doing arrest records and criminal background checks. You probably want to handle these matters more discreetly. The warrants remain in effect for a long time and can follow you from place to place, so you are not going to easily “shake them off.”
Consider contacting the Murray County Sheriff. The sheriff’s office has a webpage (https://murraycountymn.com/business/mclain-auto-center/?option=com_content&id=938&Itemid=200), although that site has no specific information on dealing with outstanding warrants. The office is located in the Murray County Courts Building, 2558 29th Street, in Slayton, MN.
If you do have warrants out on you, chances are the Murray County sheriff’s deputies or other local law enforcement are looking for you anyway. If what you did was relatively minor, they will likely keep hounding your family and friends for your whereabouts whenever time permits. If it was for something major, and arrests of others involved were already made, expect a lot more attention. Consider retaining legal counsel and take care of the arrest warrants.
