Contrary to popular belief an arrest warrant is not a legal mandate in all cases of detention. In fact, in Tippecanoe County, IN a person can be taken into custody in six scenarios:

  • An individual is stopped in the streets for routine questioning and is found to be in possession of illicit substances or illegal ammunition.
  • A person is arrested from the scene of the crime right after it takes place
  • The suspect turns himself/herself and confesses to the crime
  • The crime is committed in front of a police officer
  • A law enforcement official has reason to believe that an individual will commit a crime in the very near future.
  • A warrant has been procured from the criminal court for the arrest of a person

As you can see, a warrant is needed in only about 25% of the cases. Usually, these are matters, where an investigation takes place before the suspect is detained.

A signed order for arrest issued by the local criminal court is known as an active arrest warrant while an order that is backlogged in the system is called an outstanding warrant. A person can be detained even years after a warrant has been issued in his/her name.

So, to find out if a person you know has a warrant out in his/her name, get in touch with the county Sherriff's Office in Lafayette, 2640 Duncan Rd, Lafayette, Indiana 47904. You can also call them on 765-423-9388 but they will be less than keen on offering this information over the phone.

If you would rather do a warrant search from the comforts of your home, simply fill in the form above and you will gain access to a national database of arrest records.
