Because all TX warrants must follow the Arrest Under Warrant segment of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure (which you can read at https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/CR/htm/CR.15.htm), several assumptions can be made about TX arrest warrants no matter where you are in the state. The first is that, although a Stephens County arrest warrants may be issued in Stephens County, it is valid no matter where in the state of Texas you are, and police can cross county lines in the pursuit of a suspect.
The second assumption is that all arrest warrants must contain a set of precise details. These details include the suspect’s name, the crime that they’re suspected of, and the signature of the presiding judge/magistrate. A magistrate or judge will only authorize a warrant after presenting strong evidence suggesting that the suspect was involved. After being signed, the suspect must be arrested within 48 hours.
