Outstanding arrest warrants

This database contains more than 4,500 outstanding arrest warrants for people wanted by the Linn and Johnson County sheriff’s offices, and the University of Iowa Police Department, which were added to the database Oct. 1, 2007.

The oldest warrants date back to 1965 and include warrants for everything from parking violations, missed court appearances to felony theft and sexual-abuse charges.

Anyone with information about a person appearing in the database should not confront that person on their own, but should contact the Linn or Johnson County sheriff's offices.
