Do you know where the criminals are in your area
Have you ever wondered if any of the people living by you have criminal records or arrest warrants? How would you know if they did? They all look just like regular folk don’t they? I was recently told something that made my hair stand on end.
Perhaps you think that there aren’t any criminals around you or if there are then they’ve done their time and you’ve nothing to fear from them. In any case there can’t be that many of them can there? Well something that I was told recently made me think that this might not be true and that I should be taking it more seriously.
If you get a warrant and move state then you don’t get caught
I must have touched a nerve in the stranger that I was talking to because what he said to me next left me speechless. He laughed and told me that both he and his wife both had active arrest warrants in a different state and they simply moved to avoid them. Apparently they had warrants in other states dating back years and they haven’t been caught yet.
It’s too expensive to enforce arrest warrants across states
He told me that it was easy to avoid getting arrested if you got an arrest warrant. All you have to do is move out of the state and the police can’t be bothered to chase you. All criminals know this I was told and this person said that he knew a lot of people that lived locally but traveled to other neighboring states to commit their crimes. They hardly make it into court and jail because it’s just too expensive to come after them.
The person that told me this then informed me that moving state was a very common method of evading the law and that he knew of many more criminals living in the area that had moved to escape capture in states where they had committed crimes.
Anyone in your area could have an active arrest warrant
You probably thought that most criminals get caught sooner or later which meant that the chances of you coming in contact with them was low. This is what I thought too but the conversation with this stranger has opened my eyes. There could be a lot more people with criminal records or arrest warrants living in your area than you thought.
Find out who the criminals are
After this conversation I was worried and you should be too. I wanted to find out who and where the criminals were so that I could take steps to protect myself. You can find a lot of background information about someone by going online and using a public records web site. You can find out if someone has arrest warrants or a criminal record. You can also find out if they are married – useful if you are dating them – or bankrupt and many other things that you can use to make sure someone is who they say they are and that they aren’t hiding something from you.
Check out your neighborhood today
Who knows what you’ll find when you start to check out your friends and neighbors. You should check out the people who live near you and anyone you come into contact with. Make a point of doing active arrest warrant searches on anyone that you might hire to do any work for you and anyone you might date. You could save yourself a lot of problems and if they come up clean then you will have peace of mind.
