Mobile, AL asked in Criminal Law for Alabama

Q: Why would a warrant be issued with no bond or additional info? How to proceed?

A warrant for felony theft first degree recently showed up for my husband, issued by the county. We own a business and all we can think of is a piece of equipment we rented that was stolen from us but we have been in contact with them and they are in the city. Second is we bought/ financed a truck for a previous worker but he started using drugs and we separated employment. We recently found out the truck had been towed because he was stealing copper and had to run from the police. He never registered the truck. It isn't in our name but the only paperwork he had in there was the bill of sale where we purchased from owner. He called and asked us to get the vehicle out of impound for him which we did not. Even connections with law eforcement and bonding can't see a bond amount or info. An arrest record and mugshot is going to be very bad for business so want to take the proper steps and have you ever seen a warrant like this? Why would the not come talk to him first?
