I know who stole my property. Why doesn't the Sheriff's Department arrest the person right now?
Deputies arriving at a crime in progress are often able to accomplish an arrest on the spot. Except for critical situations, crimes reported after the fact require detailed gathering of information for investigation. Facts and evidence developed during the investigative process must be sufficient for an arrest warrant to be issued. Often, investigative workload and priorities mean that some cases are not processed as quickly as victims perceive they should be. Knowing who is assigned to your case and providing any additional discovered information is often vital to getting a case resolved.
