What is probable cause in relation to an arrest warrant?

As in most states, California law requires that probable cause exists before an arrest warrant is issued. After a judge hears a complaint alleging a crime has been committed, he must decide if probable cause exists to issue an arrest warrant. Probable cause is the belief, given the current facts presented, that a crime has been committed and the person being sought has committed that crime. The judge will direct the active warrant to a police officer or other law enforcement officer directing him to apprehend and detain the suspect until the suspect can be brought before a judge.
