A Garrett County arrest warrant search can be done online or offline. If you find the option of looking for crime history data online more feasible, you will have to rely on private agencies that sell this data for a fee. On the other hand, if you would rather approach a MD state agency when hunting down information about your subject, the local police department and judiciary can come to your assistance. The contact details of these agencies are as follows:
- The office of the sheriff: 311 E Alder St, Oakland, Maryland 21550
- The court of the magistrate: 203 S 4th St, Oakland, MD 21550
- The department of the county clerk: Po Box 447, Oakland, Maryland 21550
Do not forget to carry some form of identification when visiting the office of a state department. The fact that you will need to identify yourself when requesting data on arrest warrants from, Garrett County should tell you that if you try to walk into these agencies with an outstanding warrant to your name, you will be detained on the spot.
If through your research, you find an active warrant in the name of your subject, you can inform police officers about the current address and name of the accused. Never try to apprehend criminals in the most wanted list or those who have warrants to their name on your own. Let the police handle the arrests for you.
While arrest records and warrants are best found through the office of the sheriff, for civil records, it would be most appropriate to connect with the county clerk's department. This agency maintains the repository of court dockets.
