Arrest warrants are essentially an extension of authority on behalf of Texas. This means that if you have an arrest warrant issued for you in San Augustine County, TX, that warrant can still be executed no matter what county you are in. For a warrant to be created, several things must happen. First, the peace officers have to present the evidence that they have collected that implicates you in a crime. If the presiding judge feels that sufficient evidence has been presented, they will authorize and sign an arrest warrant. All warrants need to include the suspect’s name, the crime they are believed to have committed, and they all must also include the signature of the presiding judge.
