Warrant Division

(828) 287-6152

Sgt. Todd Laughter


Anyone needing to take out a warrant needs to contact the magistrate. The magistrate is the one that issues the warrants. Once a warrant is issued it is then turned over to the warrant department of the Sheriff’s Office for service. Once the warrant gets to this department it is entered into the county’s computer system and then sent out for service. If anyone has a question regarding service of a warrant they can contact this office.
