Last week we announced that the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office had suspended visitation to the county jail as a result of a security breach. That breach involved a shattered window in the visitation room. The Sheriff’s Office and State Bureau of Investigation have completed the first phase of their investigation and determined that the breach has likely involved the introduction of contraband into the facility. According to a report released Friday, Investigators consider the breach and contraband a danger to inmates, visiting public, detention staff and local law enforcement. The report says that arrests are anticipated in the case. The Sheriff’s Office and State Bureau of Investigation are continuing the investigation. They have temporarily repaired the shattered window, however will not resume visitation until they’ve installed specialized replacement materials.
