Completing an arrest against a suspect in Fairfield County, Ohio, needs to be preceded by a series of legal actions. The first one refers to the seeking of arrest warrants against the respective person. Such documents need to be issued by local law and order agencies such as the state police highway patrol, the county sheriff’s department office, or the town or city police department.
Once these authorities can find sufficient evidence to support their accusations, they will have to take that evidence to the court and present it to a judge or a magistrate. He or she will then have to determine whether a “probable cause” can be unmistakenly identified. If the evidence is not enough, an active warrant will not be issued against that person’s name, and the arrest will not occur.
Outstanding warrants are also part of arrest records. They stand for warrants that have not been fulfilled due to the authorities’ inability to locate and capture the suspect promptly.
