    Posted: 09/November/2011 at 22:08
The police went to my former place of residence recently and talked with the new residents.

Apparently the police asked for me, when advised I no longer lived there and asked why they were seeking me they only responded with, "we can't really say, but it's to do with an incident earlier this year."

They inquired as to my whereabouts or contact information. The new residents had my email address and gave this to the officers. However, I have not yet received an email.

I was arrested and questioned earlier this year in regards to an armed robbery. I think that was the charge anyway. I was released with out charges. I think the two others I was arrested with were eventually charged with attempted armed robbery and related offences, illegal firearms, etc and granted bail from the magistrate.

If the police were attending with an arrest warrant, would they have advised the new residents of this?

If the police were attending with an arrest warrant, would they subsequently email me?

How, without calling the police or attending a police station, can I discover if I do have an arrest warrant?

Thanks in advance.

The police won't tell your former flatmates if they are issuing an arrest warrant. You could contact a solicitor and ask his/her assistance to fin out if you have a warrant outstanding and negotiate a surrender (or otherwise as advised). You can't run forever - so perhaps settle this sooner rather than later.
Not legal advice. Personal opinion only. Seek legal advice from qualified personnel only.
