Undertaking a Hunt County Warrant and Arrest Records Search

Hunt County warrants are official court orders signed by a judge. They give the police the authority they need to take a suspect into custody in order to further the investigation of a crime. An outstanding warrant on your name means that you can get incarcerated any time and any place. For this reason, we strongly advise running a full criminal background check either on yourself (or on any other person) to avoid unpleasant surprises. This article will show you how you can perform that check.

Finding out if you are wanted by the police

To undertake a Hunt County warrant search, go to the sheriff office. Their databases contain updated criminal information you can use to trace the county’s wanted persons. You will find them at 2801 Stuart St. Greenville, Texas 75401. Their telephone number is 903-453-6800.

If you prefer to use the Internet, we recommend the electronic inquiry tool on this page. It will show you a person’s full criminal history in the entire state. The information is arranged in detailed reports that also contain civil records. The data is coming from public and private sources. It is reliable and up to date. You can rest assured that your confidentiality will not be compromised in any way.

Performing a Hunt County arrest records search

The sheriff’s homepage contains a link to an inmate search tool that presents the county’s arrestees. It contains the defendant’s name, race, gender, age, physical description, booking date and charges. Some files contain a photo as well. The information goes back to no more than 2 years. So for a more elaborate arrest search, we suggest utilizing the following two sources:

  • The computerized criminal database maintained by the TxDPS will enable users to trace a person’s arrest history and prior prosecutions in all of Texas. It will not exhibit Class C misdemeanor offenses.
  • The TDCJ maintains an electronic database that reveals information on all of the state’s offenders. You can use it for a statewide inmate inquiry.

Carrying out a case search

Hunt County court records are processed and stored by two offices. The county clerk handles misdemeanor cases and the district clerk is in charge of felony cases. Both are located at 2507 Lee Street, 2nd Floor, Greenville, TX 75401. Usually a copy of a criminal record costs 5 dollars. You will be required to submit a FOIA request in person or via mail to see any official document. The Attorney General of Texas explains how to file a request for public information.
