Because arrest warrants in Florida are executed through the authority of the state, and not an individual county, they are valid regardless of which county a suspect is currently residing in. That said, all arrest warrants in Florida are issued through an actual county, such as Hardee County. In order for a Florida arrest warrant to be created, a judge in a court house must first be convinced that police have gathered enough evidence to implicate a suspect. Once issued, police forces are required to make an arrest of the individual within 48 hours.
Once a FL arrest warrant has been issued, it is often best for the suspect to turn themselves over to authorities as quickly as possible. However, a defense lawyer must always be involved in this decision making process, as we are not able to give sound legal advice.
