Default Warrant and existing charges

My vehicle was stolen from a friends home, I have warrant for my arrest for possession on fictitious state id. I am planning on getting my warrant taken care of asap but I dont want to end up having the cops come out to take the report for me but then getting arrested while they are here. What should I do? Can they arrest me since Im the one who called to make the report or would they even do that?

Yes, they can arrest you. Once you identify yourself with your ownership papers they are likely to run your name through their computer as a matter of routine, find the warrant, and would have the option of arresting you on the spot.

I suggest you get the warrant taken care of before you report the theft of your car.

You will be arrested if an arrest warrant exists against you. It is good to seek lawyer service to get rid of the issues.

Tricky situation because if you wait too long to report the theft of the car, that will also cause problems. A theft of a car that is not reported for say two weeks would be very unusual in and of itself. Original Poster, why is there a warrant? Did you miss a court date or something or why is the matter simply not proceeding in court already?

I'm sure this will be another OP who posts and then disappears into the night never to return.

Who knows, maybe Justice was served and he's in jail already.
