Although the Buncombe County, NC Sherriff's Department does maintain their official web presence at https://www.buncombecounty.org/governing/depts/sheriff/, they do not offer online arrest records search or even a most wanted list on their site. So, if you are interested in a warrant search, you will need to go through the old school grind of visiting the three justice agencies that are entrusted the task of maintaining crime history records.

Sherriff's office

To begin with, you should approach the Sherriff's Office of Buncombe County located in 202 Haywood St, Asheville, North Carolina 28801. You will need to take your photo ID along with you when calling on the law enforcement agency along with basic information about the subject of your inquiry. For further details on how to quickly and efficiently look for information on outstanding active warrants, you can call on 828-255-5555.

The Judiciary

Because all arrest warrants go through the judicial system before they are handed over to the police for execution, the Courthouse of Buncombe, North Carolina is another place to visit when looking for information on active arrest warrants. Try the Magistrates' Court at 60 Court Plaza, Asheville, NC 28801. You can contact the courthouse directly by calling on 828- 259-3400.

The North Carolina Department of public Safety recommends that you approach the County Clerk's office when looking for arrest records related information on somebody. You can contact the clerk of court by dialing 828-232-2603.

There has been a significant increase of almost 30% in the crime rates of the county from 1999 to 2008. At the start of the decade a mere 400 incidents reports were being filed each year but by the end of the ten year interval, almost 600 complaints were lodged in the county.
