Had a prospect apply for one of our rentals. During our preliminary background check, before we even run a credit report, we found this applicant has an outstanding arrest warrant in another county. Nothing violent and no drugs, but goes to character, for not appearing in court for repeated driving offences. Their drivers license has been suspended; in facr showed up for the appointment on foot. We have disqualified them on not enough time on job and income, as well as unexplained gaps in rental and job histories.

Should we turn them into the police ---just can't stand a scofflaw!?!?

And what prey tales would you tell the police? Do you know where they currently live? Any information on application that may be helpful to police? If so, yes, I'd drop it off at the station. --99.203.xx.xxx

Why would you purposefully try to screw up someone's life that you know nothing or anything about their situation? Just asking for trouble when there is none. --173.239.xxx.x

This person was already in trouble. Trying to do the right thing is a good thing. Help the police not protect a criminal! --99.203.xx.xxx

Chances are they won't care. Had a tenant my S.O. didn't screen ughhh! Anyway, after filing eviction on this "nice, older couple" I found out via Google one of them had a felony warrant (kidnapping) from another state. Called said state, they informed me they only went 500 miles to get them, and since we are more than 500 miles, they wouldn't bother. I even provided court info, no dice. --174.209.xx.xxx

I wouldnít drop a dime on him. Too much of a coincidence and he might retaliate. Itís Not like heís on Americaís most wanted and thereís a big reward for his capture.

No way would I get involved with this. As David said you don't know all the facts of the situation. --72.188.xxx.xx

May not be extraditable. Some places won't pay the costs to get low level misdemeanors back. Our problem here on the AZ-CA border is felons from CA come here and they won't take them back and AZ can't prosecute until they break the law here. --47.216.xx.xxx

If it was someone on the news who was wanted and dangerous I would report him.

But for a rinky dink crime like this, I can't see getting involved. To me this is between him, the police and the DMV. And if he was on foot at the showing maybe he has stopped driving anyway. --72.188.xxx.xx

Absolutely report this person to the police. You have knowledge and this might save someone's life. Traffic offenses are serious and can get people killed. --69.141.xxx.xxx

Annie,

Itís a good question amd made me think. But failure to appear on traffic tickets...

Me? The police are the police and Iím not.

My job is to run my business. Once Iím a billionaire Iíll come back and save the world.

I would drive to Police station with application and tell them what you know.

Building a reputation with Police is good business and its called community policing.

Gulliani cleaned up NYC by going after petty crimes like "broken windows" and now there are volumns of books about that amazing success. Under Socialist rule of the current Mayor I will not even go back there anymore - too dangerous.

Do you want law breakers in your community because for sure some other desperate landlord will take them. --24.34.xx.xxx

After seeing what happened to the drunk driver (here illegally) who killed a truck driver released on bond in CO I say M Y O B!!!!

After the FBI fiasco in the school in FL -- where 3 warning were given about the shooter.

After seeing (those cowards) the Sheriff's hide behind their car doors while students were being killed in that school.

We could go all the way back to well forever really.

You'd like to say let them do their job-- but really they don't. So why bother?

See something-- say something-- WHY?

How do you search for outstanding warrants? I have not come across a single applicant with one and I dont think I'm that lucky. --12.47.xx.xxx

David[MI] don't know about how others find out, but I simply Googled the tenants name, a photo of "T" popped up, that's how I knew it was them, as they have a fairly common name. Picture was from a news feed that included picture of the car that was used in the abduction, same vehicle was sitting in driveway of rental! Location of offense was given, I went to the county listed and searched the sheriffs website and found mugshot with list if offenses. --174.237.xx.xxx

Message:

Why do you care? We don't know how serious the driving offenses are, are they just parking tickets? Are they for reckless driving? Drunk driving?

If the last two, maybe he might kill someone in the future, or you or someone in your family.

If its serious, the police and court will take over. If its not, it will get sorted out. --96.236.xxx.xxx

In our county we can look up civil and criminal records. That's how we found out our one tenant was in jail for 2 years for domestic violence. Not all counties have this up and running though.

Run through the county gov't web site. easy and free. --99.103.xxx.xxx
