While not particularly worrisome, the crime figures of Buchanan County do prove the need for a warrant search in the area when forging new associations on the personal or professional front. Fortunately, a few bucks and some time is all it takes to get the arrest records of a person along with details on all arrest warrants to his name.
To seek such data, you will have to approach the office of the county clerk of Buchanan or the local sheriff's office. Another judicial entity that also entertains requests for information on outstanding warrants and other crime related details is the office of the magistrate. The representative of the sitting judge will be able to find details on every legal instrument that was ever issued against the subject of your inquiry.
So, whether it is something as serious as an active warrant in the name of this person or a bench warrant issued in a traffic offense or even a search order or subpoena, you will find the low down on all of these from the magistrate's court. If you would like a more extensive search that not just includes the outstanding warrants database of Buchanan County police but also the civil records maintained by state departments, you should get in touch with the clerk of court.
In contrast, the office of the sheriff will prove to be the ultimate source of information on criminal matters. This not only includes data on arrest warrants but also a list of the most wanted for Buchanan and other crime related facts about the area.
