How Do I Find Out if I Have a Warrant?

An arrest warrant is filed against an individual by a judge on behalf of the State of California. Warrants can be filed by the traffic department for a traffic-related offense or by the criminal courts for a felony or misdemeanor offense (generally when the prosecutor has enough evidence against a suspect to file criminal charges).

Most people can contact or search the Sheriff's Department database in the county where the alleged crime took place, which would be the Orange County Sheriff's Department in this case. To search for an active warrant in Orange County, CA, click here.
