Searching for Wayne County Warrants and Arrest Records

The best way to discover if a person is wanted for a crime or is hiding from the police is to access Wayne County warrants. Although there is no official list of wanted people on the Internet, you won’t have a problem acquiring information.

We suggest paying a visit to the Warrant Squad of the sheriff office, (at 207 E Chestnut St. Goldsboro, North Carolina 27530.Telephone: 919-731-1481) and asking about the particular person you would like to check. In most cases, they do not withhold information regarding fugitives for reasons of public safety. They also hope that the public will deliver them some tips that may expedite criminal investigations.

Another highly useful source you can use in your investigation is the Magistrate Office. They are in charge of issuing arrest orders and, therefore, they possess the most accurate and updated information on Wayne County warrants. They can be reached at 919-722-6270.

Finding Wayne County arrest records

Obtaining information on a person’s prior convictions

All the sources mentioned above cannot tell you if the one on whom you run your check has a history of convictions. To find out whether he or she has been prosecuted for a crime and / or been found guilty, you have to access Wayne County court records.

We suggest paying a visit to the Criminal Division of the Clerk of Superior Court and filing a request for a criminal record check. It will cost you $25 per certified copy. For more details, dial 919-722-6170.
