Boone County maintains a list of active warrants, some dating back to 1982.  These warrants are for a wide variety of crimes including mostly misdemeanor cases.  Here are some interesting breakdowns of the warrant list:  

25% of the entire list of offenders are believed to be living either out of County or out of State.  24% of the entire list are wanted for failing to appear in civil cases in Family Court.  15% have already been arrested at least one time on the case in question and have either failed to appear or violated terms and conditions of Bond or Probation.  37% of total warrants were issued prior to 2013.  8% of all warrants are for passing worthless checks.  (These percentages are figured by individual category against the entire active list)  

It is not feasible for us to maintain the entire list on here, so warrants listed on here will will be a hybrid of people wanted for serious felonies as well as other important cases.  This is a feature of our website we are extremely excited about and hope it produces positive results.  

Please remember, just because a person has a warrant on them, it does not mean they are guilty of a crime.  Their guilt or innocence will be decided in the court of law.  Warrant information on this page is monitored and we make every attempt to actively maintain such information, however it may take us a few days to remove information after a warrant has been served.

If you have information on a person's specific whereabouts, you may contact an officer 24 hours a day at 304-369-9913, you may also call the Sheriff's Office Monday through Friday 8am - 4pm at 304-369-7340 or send a crime tip from our home page.  We will keep your information confidential and will not disclose it to the offender.
