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. If you are wondering why you ought to bother with such a formality when you have never been involved in illicit activities, you need to understand that active warrants are sometimes also issued against wrong people due to cases of mistaken identity.
