UPDATE: Phones at Buncombe Sheriff's Office are back to normal.
Buncombe County Sheriffs Office main non- emergency number, (828) 250-6670, has been voluntarily taken out of service due to a Telephone Denial of Services attack.

The Sheriffs Office requests that anyone needing assistance call 911 for emergency or non-emergency matters until this issue is rectified.
