Due to the way that Pasco County arrest warrants function, and indeed arrest warrants everywhere in the state of Florida, if you have an arrest warrant issued for you, then you can be arrested anywhere in the state of Florida. This is because even though a specific county always issues an arrest warrant, it’s done by the state of Florida itself.
A Pasco County FL arrest warrant can be created after a crime has been committed, and police forces collect evidence that suggests a particular suspect was responsible. Once this evidence has been presented to a judge, that judge can determine whether to issue the warrant. If he does, it grants police 48 hours in which to apprehend the suspect.
