When it comes to an arrest report, I’d say that it is not too hard to find this information. The police have put up their arrest log on their website, so it is only a matter of visiting their portal, and you will have the information you need. However, if you want a warrant list, criminal court records, or details from the police blotter, you will have a tough time finding it.
Yes, you can call on the judiciary for a criminal check, but they also expect you to contact them in person. The moral of the story is this- You will have to do a bit of driving around if you are looking for criminal court records. I will cover one more point here before I start giving you contact information.
While you will have no trouble getting your hands on arrest records, information on arrest warrants is a different ball game. You can go to the police or the Clerk of Court for your warrant search but let alone the warrants list for the area; they may not even tell you about the active warrants in the name of your subject.

What information can I get from the Sheriff’s Dept if I approach them for an arrest log or details about arrest warrants?
- Like I mentioned, you don’t even have to make an effort to drive down to the Office of the Sheriff if you are only interested in an arrest inquiry. You can use the inmate lookup tool at https://inmatelookup.pendersheriff.com/InmateLookup, and you will know all about people who are currently in custody at the county jail.
However, suppose you wish to get additional details, like the charges against the detainee and information on the bond amount. In that case, you will have to contact the Detention Center or the Sheriff’s Dept.
- Now, let me tell you how things work when it comes to information on arrest warrants. The police and the judiciary keep the warrants list. But, details on active warrants are only released once the cops are done investigating the matter. And even after they complete their investigation, they may not give you details about arrest warrants because they don’t want the suspects to be warned of their impending arrest.
- So, what will become of a warrant inquiry that is initiated through the Sheriff’s Dept? Well, you may get a simple yes or no in response to it. But, you can be sure about one thing; if there is an outstanding warrant against your subject, your offender’s search will lead to his arrest.
- That said, you can find information on the criminal incidents in your area through the sheriff’s website. This facility is available at http://www.mapnimbus.com/DataNimbusClient.html?Client=Pender%20County,%20NC.
