    Laws are different in each state, so if you want somebody to be able to try to answer you need to identify your state.

    There are statutes which potentially criminalizes the failure to return leased property:
    Quote Quoting Alabama Code, Section 13A-8-141 - Prima facie evidence of fraudulent leasing or rental.
    For the purposes of Section 13A-8-140 of this article, it is prima facie evidence that a lessee fraudulently leased or rented property, and intended, knew or expected that he would not perform the terms and obligations of the lessee under a rental contract if:

    (1) The name or address of the lessee appearing on the written agreement shall, at the time it is signed, be false or fictitious, and if the lessee fails to return the leased property to the lessor within seven days after lessor makes written demand for its return, notwithstanding that the term under the rental contract has not expired; or

    (2) The rental contract provides for the return of the leased property to a particular place, at a particular time, and the lessee shall fail to return the leased property to the place and within the time specified in the said rental contract, and the lessor thereafter makes written demand for the return of the leased property to the place specified in the rental contract within 48 hours from the time the written demand is delivered to the lessee, and the lessee fails to return said property to the lessor within the said 48 hour period; or

    (3) A lessee obtains or exerts control over personal property by executing a rental contract which provides for the return of said property to a particular place, or at a particular time, and thereafter abandons said property, secretes, converts, sells or attempts to sell the same or any part thereof.
    I don't see a similar provision criminalizing the failure to cooperate with repossession following purchase, but I may have missed something. The Alabama Code is available here.

    Whether a warrant can be issued will depend upon the facts and circumstances. For example, if you commit a crime, a prosecutor can seek a warrant. If you fail to appear for a creditor's exam on debt you owe, a judge can issue a bench warrant.
