Man, I would think the statute of limitation has run on that warrant.
We're not exactly looking at a murder here and how are you going to find the defendant?
Let alone witnesses?
Tenn. sheriff looks to serve 80-year-old warrant
ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. (AP) - The Carter County Sheriff's Department is trying to serve an 80-year-old warrant for the arrest of a man who wrote a $30 bad check, although unsure if he is alive. The warrant, issued in August 1928, calls for the arrest of J.A. Rowland. It says he owes $30 for the bad check, $2 for the arrest fee and 50 cents each for the affidavit and warrant.
Clerks at the Glynn County Sheriff's Office in Brunswick, Ga., recently found the warrant buried in a records storage room while cleaning and mailed it to Tennessee.
Current Carter County Sheriff Chris Mathes told The Elizabethton Star he is still under a legal obligation to find Rowland.
