How to Search for Catawba County Warrants and Arrest Records

Are people that you know (or think you know) wanted for a crime they committed in the past? This question can be answered by examining Catawba County warrants.

Arrest records, in turn, will tell you if one of these people has ever spent time in jail, and so they should be sought as well if you intend to run an efficient background check.

Inquiring about Catawba County warrants

The first source to turn to in order to obtain information on the county’s fugitives is the wanted list published by the sheriff. It contains names and mugshots of people against whom criminal warrants have been issued. For more information, you can call the sheriff office at 828-464-5241.

Another source to get updated on Catawba County warrants is the office of the Magistrate. They issue arrest orders upon police demand. Visit them in person (100 Government Services Dr, Newton, North Carolina 28658. phone: 828-327-9093) to inquire about people that matter to you.

Carrying out an arrest search

The sheriff can also assist you in finding Catawba County arrest records. His website contains a jail roster with names of people currently incarcerated in the county jail plus a description of their charges, booking date, court date, court docket #, bond amount and the agency that made the arrest.

A statewide inmate inquiry

Information on NC arrest records can be found on the online offender database of the Department of Public Safety. This database includes names of active and inactive inmates in all of the state’s correctional facilities.

Obtaining copies of Catawba County court dockets
