In the state of Texas, as with many of the states throughout the country, and arrest warrant is an authorization granted to officers of the peace that allows them to place a named suspect under arrest. In order for a warrant to be authorized, evidence has to be shown to a judge or a magistrate. If the judge finds that enough evidence has been provided, they will then sign the warrant, giving officers of the peace 48 hours to apprehend the suspect. All arrest warrants must include the name of the alleged perpetrator, the signature of the judge, and brief details of the crime that was committed.
In order to perform a Montgomery County warrants search, there are a number of different avenues which may be followed. Generally, we recommend that you start first with the warrants division of the Montgomery County sheriffs office. You can find a page on their website that deals with warrants at http://www.mocosheriff.com/dyncat.cfm?catid=1836. You can also visit this office yourself at #1 Criminal Justice Drive, in Conroe, Texas 77301. The phone number for this office is 936-760-5884. If searching instead for arrest records, then you will want to visit the website of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, as their Offender Information Search tool found at http://www.tdcj.state.tx.us/mediasvc/offender_information/index.html - can get you the arrest records of any person currently in prison. Additionally, you can use the above search form to instantly search through an online criminal records database.
Often, the best course of action when confronted with an active warrant is to surrender yourself as soon as possible to local authorities. Because Texas warrants are considered an extension of the authority of the state and not the county where the warrant was issued you can be arrested regardless of which Texas county you are currently in.
