The Sheriff's Office processes and maintains current warrant data, as required by state statute. Deputies assigned to this division are responsible for carrying out the Sheriff's responsibility for executing all arrest orders issued by lawful authority.
A warrant is a court order to apprehend an individual. The Sheriff's Office does not issue warrants; arrest warrants are issued by the Courts, signed by Judges and then entered into the statewide and national databases.
The information on warrants comes directly from the Sixth Judicial District Court. The Sheriff's Office offers the online list as a public service for informational and public safety purposes. A name on the list does not indicate that the person is guilty of a crime; only that a warrant was on file for their arrest on the date and time the list was published.
The list is updated daily at 9:00 PM, but there are often delays between court action on a warrant and updates to the warrant database. The list attempts to be accurate as of the last update and based upon the information provided by the Court. All active warrants must be confirmed prior to enforcement. If you determine that a name is listed in error, please contact the appropriate Court clerk to resolve the issue.
Do not attempt to apprehend the person yourself or approach them on your own. Some persons may be armed and dangerous, so arrests should be handled by law enforcement only.
Find other types of warrants by searching the Minnesota Judicial Branch's Case Records website. You must accept the terms and limitations of the database search before you can search by civil/family cases or criminal cases.
