Arrest warrants from Steuben County, Indiana can exclusively be issued by the magistrate of a tribunal at any level of the judicial hierarchy that has criminal jurisdiction. Also, by law, a person who has the powers of a magistrate can issue an active warrant. An order for arrest issued in criminal matters is vastly different from a bench warrant or other judicial decrees which have a defined validity period.

An active order will remain valid in the system as an outstanding warrant for almost 100 years. This means that there is no chance of the warrant expiring within the lifetime of the accused. Also, unlike other legal provisions, an active warrant from Steuben is not bound by the restrictions of geography. So, these detention decrees can be used at any place even outside the issuing county to effect an arrest.

To make things easier for law enforcement officials, particularly when apprehending repeat offenders and those that have been accused of serious legal transgressions, arrest records and outstanding warrants related information is made available to the police through a national database. So, the minute a person is arrested for any odd reason, his/her name is run through this database.

Fortunately, even regular folks can access the data in this repository by requesting a state department to conduct a warrant search in Steuben County for them. This can be done by filing a formal request for such an inquiry through the following government offices:

  • The office of the sheriff: 206 E. Gale St, Angola , IN 46703; tel no: 260-668-1000
  • The magistrate's court: 55 S. Public Sq, Angola, IN 46703-1900
  • The county clerk's office: Steuben County Clerk, 55 S. Public Sq, Angola, IN 46703-1900

With a rise of over 50% in the rate of reported crime, Steuben County, IN currently clocks in almost 900 criminal incidents each year. Of this cumulative figure, only about 2% of the complaints are against violent crime while the remaining are related to larceny, theft and other property crimes.
