There are a few simple steps that any arrest warrant in Montgomery County, Ohio needs to follow in order to gain the status of an active warrant. First of all, a criminal act needs to be observed either by a law enforcement officer or by a simple citizen of the county. Secondly, the law-related agencies in the County, such as the city or town police or the Sheriff’s office need to gather sufficient evidence so that a probable cause can be determined by a magistrate or a sitting judge. Once this occurs, these warrants will start gaining their legal force and the same legal agencies will be able to search, find, and incarcerate the suspects.
Active arrest warrants in this county, like in any other county in Ohio, become outstanding warrants in case law enforcement agencies have not succeeded in apprehending the individual against whom the arrest warrant had been issued.
