Searching for Burke County Warrants and Arrest Records
To inquire about Burke County warrants, visit the sheriff’s Records Division at 150 Government Drive, Morganton, North Carolina 28655, phone: 828-438-5505.
They are responsible for entering arrest orders into the sheriff’s record management system and so can tell you if a specific individual is wanted for a crime. They are open to the public from 8 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon, Monday to Friday.
Furthermore, you can inquire about outstanding warrants right where they are issued, which is the Magistrate Office at 201 S Green St, Morganton, NC 28655, phone: 828-433-3219.
Burke County warrants can also be viewed online. The sheriff displays a list of wanted people on his P2C webpage. The list shows the suspects’ personal details (age, gender, race), charge description, docket type and the investigating agency.
How to perform an arrest search
The same sheriff’s P2C web page will also get you access to Burke County arrest records. You can either search a detainee by name or view a whole list of people currently incarcerated in the local correctional facility.
In case you are interested in a more extensive inmate search, we suggest utilizing the online database managed by the NC DPS. It allows you to locate an inmate (including past inmates) in the state’s prison system.
Inquiring about a person’s history of prosecutions and convictions
Burke County court records indicate whether a person has ever been prosecuted and found guilty of a crime. You can look for these records at the office of the Clerk of Court (phone no. 828-433-3200). Ask them to perform a background check for you. To get a certified copy, you must pay $25.
For you information, under NC FOIA laws, almost all governmental files are considered public records available to everyone.
