St. Johns County Arrest Records and Warrant Search
There are a few available options for a St. Johns County warrant search. You can drop by the sheriff office and ask for information. Their address is:
St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office 4015 Lewis Speedway St. Augustine, FL 32084
However, it might be risky since if it turns out there is an outstanding warrant for your arrest, your visit may end in jail. Alternatively, you can send the sheriff an e-mail asking for information (firstname.lastname@example.org). Yet you should know that this mail will automatically become a part of St. Johns County public records which everyone can see. Finally you may choose to utilize the warrant lookup tool on the sheriff's website (available here). It might be a little less accurate in comparison to the information you can extract by visiting the sheriff office in person.
