Throughout the state of Texas, all arrest warrant laws are the same. This is not because each county independently came to a consensus regarding warrant laws, but rather because the state of Texas itself issued the laws that all warrants must follow. Although Stonewall County issues warrants, as all counties can, arrest warrants in Texas are issued through the state’s authority. This extension of authority has several implications, including granting police forces the ability to execute arrest warrants over state lines.
All TX arrest warrants fall under the Arrest Under Warrant section of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, which you can read https://statutes.capitol.texas.gov/Docs/CR/htm/CR.15.htm. Essentially, this code stipulates the way that all Texas warrants must be handled. While you can read all of the details at the link above, this basically comes down to requiring police forces to issue sufficient evidence against a suspect in a court, enabling a judge/magistrate to issue a warrant for that suspect. Once the warrant is issued and signed, police forces have 48 hours to apprehend the suspect.
