The Roanoke County Sheriff's Office does not ask for money by phone call or by mail. If you are contacted by anyone saying that they are calling because you are in contempt of court and need to send money, it is a scam! Please call the sheriff's office at 540-283-3145, or the Police Department at 540-562-3265.
