An arrest warrant search in Rio Arriba County, NM, should not only be done to find detention directives against third parties but also in your name. Suppose you are wondering why you ought to bother with such a formality when you have never been involved in illicit activities. In that case, you need to understand that active warrants are sometimes also issued against wrong people due to mistaken identity cases.

While this can be eventually proved in court, you will end up spending a few nights in custodial detention at first, so why not save yourself the trouble and find out in advance if somebody has been up to mischief in your name? When you initiate an inquiry into the release of warrants for arrests, you will also be told about past criminal matters in the subject’s name.

If you find an active warrant in your name, it would be best to consult with an attorney. A legal professional will be able to work out a bargain for you and present your case in the best light. It would be futile to try to escape from a Rio Arriba County outstanding warrant because these orders stay valid for almost 100 years. Add to this the fact that information on all pending orders for detention and arrest records are sent to a central FBI-managed repository.

From here, this data is accessed every time an arrest is made, so even if you are stopped for a traffic violation, your name will be run through this database. As soon as an arrest warrant is found in your name, you will be arrested on the spot. Civilian applicants will have to rely on the local police or the judiciary to offer them results in response to their warrant search. To file the petition for such an inquiry, go to:

  • The police: 1122 Industrial Park Rd, Espanola, New Mexico 87532
  • The county clerk: 7 Main Street, Tierra Amarilla, New Mexico 87575
