Easy Access To An Arrest Report And Warrant Search Facility In Stanly!

The first bit of good news I have for you guys is that you will find it incredibly easy to access an arrest report in Stanly County, NC. The Sheriff’s Dept not only allows you to check their arrest log but also offers an offender search tool on their website. So, if you want arrest records, you don’t need to budge from your chair to get these.

Now, let us talk about the other information that the police blotter contains. Most notable among the details in this compilation is the data pertaining to arrest warrants. Now, this is where the problem starts. The police does not allow you to access their warrant list for the area.

In fact, you won’t even find details on the most wanted persons on their site, which is information that I generally use to compile my very own basic warrants list. Also, let us get one thing clear- the police do not handle requests for a criminal check.

This means that when in need of elaborate criminal court records, going to the sheriff may not work in your favor. That said, let us talk about how you can connect with state agencies for your warrant search and how you can access information on active warrants and arrest reports online.

Can I get a criminal check done through the judiciary in Stanly?

Actually, if you need in-depth criminal court records or easy access to the court docket database, I would strongly suggest that you go to the office of the Clerk of Court. These guys are responsible for handling all requests pertaining to background checks that come from the public. They can be contacted in two ways:  

  • You can visit the agency office at 201 S Second St, Albemarle, NC 28002. Once there, either use the public service terminals for scouring through their database of court cases or pay $25 for a formal criminal check, which will get you a certified report.
  • Send in your warrant search request through mail to PO Box 668, Albemarle, NC 28002. In this case, the fee will have to be paid by certified check or money order.
