As in most other parts of NM, an arrest warrant search in Eddy County can be done through the office of the magistrate. The police and the county clerk’s office are other state departments that entertain request for information on arrest records and outstanding warrants. There are many common threads in the procedure followed by these agencies for the dissemination of crime history data.
For one, all of these agencies will want to know not just about the subject of the inquiry but also the applicant. In fact, when seeking information on Eddy County active warrants and arrest records from these agencies, you will be expected to show up at their office with some form of government ID in hand. You can also mail in your search request form but even in this case, you will need to provide your name and contact details.
Another commonality is that these state departments will only offer details on criminal matters that were heard by the tribunals within the state of NM. This means that if the subject was involved in a criminal transgression outside the geographical boundary of the state, you will not be able to find out about such cases from the local police or the judiciary.
In stark contrast, when you connect with a private entity that sells crime history information for a fee, you can find details on outstanding warrants and arrests from all over the country. To avail this option, fill the form on top of this page. Although an online inquiry can undoubtedly be executed with far more ease than driving down to an agency office, there is a catch here.
You will not get a formal background report through an online agency. For this, you will have to go:
- The police: Eddy County Courthouse, Suite 100, 102 N Canal, Carlsbad, New Mexico 88220
- The county clerk: 325 S. Main Street, Carlsbad, New Mexico 88220
- The court of the magistrate: 102 N Canal St, Carlsbad, NM 88220
