Every county in Texas follows the arrest warrant laws that have been outlined at the state level. Although you can read the official language that governs Val Verde County warrants at http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/CR/htm/CR.15.htm, we will outline the essential parts in this article, as well as point you in the right direction for finding out whether or not you have an active Val Verde County warrant.
One of the most important things to be aware of concerning Val Verde arrest warrants is that they are valid throughout the state despite being issued by the county. This means that persons wanted under warrant cannot flee and evade arrest by going to another county. All arrest warrants, no matter their origin, must detail the name of the suspect, the crimes that they are accused of, and the signature of an authorizing judge. After being signed, an arrest warrant demands an arrest be made within 48 hours.
The best way to determine whether or not you have an existing arrest warrant in Val Verde County, TX, is to contact Val Verde County’s sheriff. This can be done at PO Box 1201, in Del Rio, TX 78841, or at 830-774-7513.
