State of Texas: What does Sw Capias Issued mean? Is it state-wide or search warrant by any chance? It is for a SJF Theft case.

Thank you so much!

It's certainly a warrant or order for arrest:

SW is more likely statewide not search warrant.

Can be used in any kind of criminal case.

You may wish to consult with a local Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer for clarification on such abbreviation. Many lawyers do offer a free consultation.

A capias is an arrest warrant. It can issue following an indictment, for failure to pay court ordered monies, or following a motion to revoke probation (just to name a few).
