A: If there is an active warrant out for a theft charge, then yes, you will be arrested and booked into the jail. There are many different theft charges in Georgia, both misdemeanors and felonies. There will likewise be many different considerations on whether or not you will have a bond (i.e., if you're on probation/parole/bond on another case, criminal history, flight risk, etc.). If it is a misdemeanor, you are entitled to a bond. I would recommend you speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney to defend you and obtain a favorable resolution for your case. Best of luck.
