Finding SC, Lexington County Arrest Records and Warrants
Lexington County arrest records present a person’s incarceration history. You will need them in addition to warrants and court dockets so as to carry out a criminal record check.
Where can you find information on Lexington County arrests?
The sheriff websites contain a list of the county’s currently incarcerated inmates. You can narrow your inquiry by filtering results according to name, incarceration date, charges, booking agency and the detainee’s personal details (e.g. race, gender, age). For further information, call the Detention Bureau at 803-785-2700.
To initiate a more extensive South Carolina offender search, use the electronic database on the SCDC’s website. It contains names of inmates incarcerated in correctional centers all over the state.
Searching for Lexington County Warrants
Since there are not any official computerized databases that contain information on the county’s wanted people, you will be forced to undertake a warrant search by physically arriving at the sheriff office (521 Gibson Rd. Lexington, SC 29072. Telephone: 803-785-8230).
Once again, you can resort to statewide databases for a more thorough investigation. The South Carolina Law Enforcement Division allows you to perform a criminal records search in two ways:
- Send a mail request to SLED Records Department. PO Box 21398. Columbia SC Searchers are required to download a special form that can be found here.
- Use their SLED CATCH for an online search. It can be accessed on their website.
Both types of inquiries demand a payment of $25, a person’s name, birth date, and social security number.
Finding court dockets
To obtain Lexington County court records, refer to the clerk of courts. Their website offers a computerized judicial index search which displays all types of official dockets issued by the courts. The clerk operates an information line if you require further information: 803-359-8000.
Initiating a sex offender search
The sheriff office operates an online offender watch for the purpose of tracing sex offenders in your area. You can search by name or by geographic location. Unfortunately, this website tends to malfunction repeatedly. So you can refer, instead, to the state’s registry and conduct your investigation there.
