My question involves an arrest warrant from the State of: unknown
Hi all. He're a recital of the facts as I know them.
My landlord/employer called earlier today to inform me that an officer was looking for me on "Bethlehem Street." The officer said (something like) that he had a "NCIS teletype" to deliver to me concerning a family member, "but he didn't think anyone in the family was dead."
Landlord provider officer with my current address and phone, and got the 'officer's' phone from caller ID. Call received to my number shortly thereafter; no message; a uniformed individual with an official vehicle later visited the apartment building, knocked on a resident's door, and asked if a car was my vehicle. No card or "yellow note" left (the mail facility is inside/locked). Officer's cell reverses to a cell network that does not look to be the Metro's PD.
OK. After walking out of the office late one night in a high crime area, and handing the officer my ID, he did a warrant check and I was arrested approx. 1 year ago for a traffic violation/FTA; this warrant evidently appeared due to an undocumented individual using my SSN during a traffic stop. Not a fun experience; my attorney requested a trial and the grand jury did not return an indictment.
One might assume from this, that no other warrants existed in the system, and my attorney confirmed at the time that this action was quashed.
Possibly significantly, the address on "Bethlehem Street" is one where I lived for only five weeks, (the undocumented worker evidently was doing construction there), and should have no other association with my identify (?) other than that action.
In the background, I have (from some years ago) a speeding ticket and a public disorder charge from a neighboring state which did not reach trial after negotiation with the departments involved. None seemed to be showing in court records/warrants during the incident above, or during prior checks.
So... wondering what's going on and what's the next step, and don't want to spend time in jail on something I don't particularly know anything about.
Have emailed my attorney (same building where I work and it's a weekend) and plan to walk in his office on Monday morning; can also call 'Metro' and ask if I have any warrants tomorrow (? unless I should tonight). Could also walk up to any of several PD officers I know, and just ask (see above, about not wanting a a free stay in jail) Have also checked the online records for all counties involved, FWIW; nothing seems outstanding, nothing on the Metro's online warrants list, but not exactly major metros.
Way I guess it is:
1) There's really a family-related issue (though no one in the family knows of any).
2) Someone with clout wants to contact me (not unthinkable, but there are easier ways).
3) Someone wants to send a particular message (also not unthinkable for a number of reasons)
4) This is an attempt to serve civil process of some type.
5) I have a warrant for something I can't guess (really; I've read other posters here ;P)
6) Whomever used my SSN/ID info above, has done it again.
7) Or, of course, an unanticipated issue.
SO: opening the floor for advice or commentary. Thanks.
