Los Angeles County Warrant Search Information

The search warrants issued by the Los Angeles County in California enable the police to apprehend the person who has committed a crime. An arrest warrant is signed by the judge and becomes active. When it is signed, the suspect may be incarcerated at any given time no matter where that person is located at the moment. To begin a Los Angeles County Warrant Search, enter a first and last name into the form above.

In order to carry out a Los Angeles county warrant search, one must first visit the sheriff’s office and go through their criminal databases. This system dates back to 1988. The databases have warrants that have been issued by the law enforcement agencies of Los Angeles County. The authorities of the state and the FBI have access to this information.

Simply being arrested or having your house searched is not good enough to tell you that a criminal case has been filed against you. When you check the Los Angeles Superior Court site you will find whether there is a pending case or active warrant against you. If you find that there is one, it is probably a bench warrant issued by the court for your failure to appear.

You can conduct a proper online search via the LASD online portal where you enter the details about a person and can find information about them in the last two hours. The information presented here will have the personal details and the physical description of a detainee. You can even view the date of their arrest, their charge level, the jail where they were held, and details for the bail. If you think this information is not sufficient enough then you can always go for a wider search option through the online portal of the Correctional Department of Los Angeles.

All criminal courthouses in the Los Angeles County have capabilities to run any information for the presence of a warrant. The court clerk asks for your name and the date of birth to match the information to any pending case.

  1. Hi, I’m currently working on a research project regarding CA SB10 (bail reform), which is awaiting a vote in the State Assembly. Do you have the statistics for exactly how many outstanding warrants there are in L.A. County? Thank you.

    1. Gregory,

      Our resources can locate warrant records by name however we don’t have an exact number for you regarding the number of outstanding warrants in Los Angeles county. Many counties, including LA, are notorious for having delayed reporting of warrant information to public record databases. It is our recommendation that you contact the Los Angels County Sheriff’s Office to inquire about this information. They will have a more accurate count of outstanding warrants for your research project.

  3. I believe I have a warrant in LA county. I have resided in San Diego county all my life. My name is April Hopwood my date of birth is 11-29-1982. I am currently seeking treatment at the VOA southwest in San Diego Ca on completion of this program all my current charges will be dropped. I have called the LA county sheriffs department and my case had not been filed. Up until my last arrest I learned about my warrant. Is there any way I can get it transferred down here to San Diego? Or is there any advise or direction you can lead me in? I would appreciate it. Respectfully April Hopwood.

    1. Thank you for reaching out about our Los Angeles County Warrant blog April, unfortunately we don’t show any information on the warrant you mentioned. If there is a pending case that hasn’t been filed yet you will need to contact the relevant law enforcement agency and see if it’s possible to have your case transferred. Another option would be to contact legal counsel on this matter, it’s possible there is a precedence for this but we cannot weigh in on any legal advise. We are merely a public records website repository and don’t have any affiliation with any legal entity or have connections to the LA Sheriff Department

    1. George, we don’t show an active California warrant for you however we do show a North Carolina criminal charge of Driving While License Revoked. It doesn’t look like this there is a warrant attached to that North Carolina driving infraction.

If this was related to a traffic citation it’s more likely to resolve this warrant than a more serious crime

    1. We ran a Los Angeles warrant search for Ricardo Antonio Romero and did not find any active Los Angeles warrants for him. There are a multitude of other people with the same first and last name that have active California warrant however the middle name and DOB do not match.

      That being said Shirley, if you feel there is a pending Los Angeles bench warrant for a non appearance in court for a traffic citation then you might want to reach out to the relevant Los Angeles county traffic courthouse clerk and inquire for more details about Ricardo.
