    How do I search for warrants?

    Was charged with grand theft and burglary back in 2002, did my house arrest and probation. Lost all documents during my move. Called to police station where I got arrested was told that they made the arrest but don't have my records because it is in another county but said briefly that I have a warrant in 2004. I am now concern and not sure where to go from here. Should I be getting a lawyer to help with the warrant search.

    You mean the warrant for your arrest, not a search warrant?

    You should obtain a criminal defense attorney or turn yourself in to the police department. If this is just a paperwork mistake, they should be able to get it sorted out. Unless the arrest warrant is for some other offense you committed?

    If the county court has online records, you should find your case there. If not adjudicated properly that is likely where the warrant is from.

    @ Disagreeable: was able to locate the the case number but not the records and have submitted a request for copies of records. If it is "not adjudicated properly that is likely where the warrant is from" what should be the next step? Get a lawyer?

    You may be able to handle it yourself or you may need to get a lawyer. It really depends on why it was not adjudicated properly and if it something you can fix yourself.
    I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.

    Get a local lawyer. In the real world there is a quagmire of local procedural law, mostly political. Lawyers and non-lawyers take notice that State Rules of Civil Procedure and even Criminal Procedure often have fine print that defers to LOCAL LAW lol. Local procedural laws can often be found on the particular County's Web Site. Good Luck.

    Hey budding attorneys - suggest you watch the movie "MY UNCLE VINNY".
