Medina County Arrest Records and Warrant Search
Thanks to Texas Public Information Act (1973), everyone has access to criminal documents, such as Medina County arrest records or warrants. What is more, due to the technological innovations of recent years, now it is also possible to find many of these documents on the Internet.

The sheriff office should be your main source of information. Their criminal databases can be utilized to find out whether anyone you are familiar with is wanted by the law. Visit them in order to conduct the inquiry (The county does not offer online public databases).Their address is 801 Ave Y Hondo, TX 78861. For more details, dial 830-741-6150.

Conducting an arrest search
The primary source for finding Medina County arrest records is the county jail. Their phone number is 830-741-6058. The information they provide might be incomplete, so you may choose to turn to wider databases. We recommend two primary sources:
- The TDCJ puts at your disposal a computerized data bank that will allow you to initiate a comprehensive Texas inmate search. Results present information from the state’s correctional facilities.
- The TxDPS enables you to trace a person’s criminal history in Texas with the help of its computerized crime records database. Be advised, results do not include minor offenses.
Obtaining official court dockets
In order to locate Medina County court records, you need to contact the county clerk in case you seek information on misdemeanor offenses and to the district clerk if you are seeking documents related to felony charges. You will be instructed to send them a FOIA request by mail. They are obligated to deliver you the files within a week or two after they confirm they are available to the public (cases under active investigation and juvenile records are usually kept confidential). Both offices are found at 1100 16th Street Room 109 Hondo, TX 78861.
Data published by the TxDPS reveal that during 2013, 545 crimes were reported in the county. 160 were violent, the rest were property crimes. Statistically, that meant 1,197.1 offenses per 100,000 residents. Law enforcement agencies incarcerated 80 people.
