Not only a Richmond County arrest warrant search but also a mere glance at the website of the local sheriff's department can get you a wealth of information on criminal happenings in your neighborhood and offenders who have committed these acts.
Unlike other law enforcement agencies in VA, the sheriff's department offers two most wanted lists; one for crimes that occurred within their geographical jurisdiction and another for the central Virginia area. These lists contain information on the active warrants from Richmond County against suspects, a description of the charges levied against them along with a picture of the offenders and personal data that will help in identifying them.
Although this is a simple way to conduct an active warrants inquiry, it cannot hold a candle to a formal background check. For one, it has to be understood here that not all offenders are included in the most wanted list. Only those accused of more heinous crimes make it to these folds. In addition, there is no information pertaining to Richmond County arrest records in this list.
In contrast, if you launch a proper crime history inquiry, you can get details on past arrests as well as outstanding warrants from Richmond in the name of the accused. For such searches, you can go to:
- The office of the sheriff: PO Box 115, Warsaw, Virginia 22572
- The court of the magistrate: 101 Court Cir, Warsaw, VA 22572
- The department of the county clerk: 100 Court Street, Warsaw, Virginia 22572
