I had a phone call from an old housemate in Perth. The police were looking for me for 5 warrants for unpaid fines. I now live in Adelaide. Will I go to jail if SA police look for me? I have started paying my fines but apparently it's too late.

You better pay them off fast!!!

Sounds like they're Warrants of Apprehension. The olde saying goes 'It's the money or the body'.
Next time pay your fines or be prepared to do the time. The old trick of moving interstate doesn't work anymore.

I'm not a lawyer but I've dealt with a lot of them!
