Bail and Bail Bondsmen:  

Everyone committed to the custody of the Alexander County Jail is assigned conditions of release by the Magistrate.  These conditions may include a bond which is a monetary amount that guarantees that person’s appearance at all court dates.  Depending on the amount of the bond, the person posting that bond may be required to produce proof of current tax payments for their property.  Bonds can be satisfied by one of the following methods:

  • Pay the full amount of the bond in cash to the Clerk of Court.  The full amount will be returned to the surety (person making the bond) after the defendant has appeared at all court dates and the case has been disposed of.
  • Use the value of real property owned by the surety in Alexander County to satisfy the bond amount.  This may require the person to produce a current tax certification obtained from the Alexander County Tax Office.
  • Pay a bondsman to act as a surety.  This generally incurs a non-refundable fee paid to the bondsman (usually around 15%-20% of the bond amount) but may be satisfied by other means arranged with the bonding agency.

The severe weather that affected Alexander and surrounding counties has passed but the aftermath remains. The Bethlehem, Ellendale, and Sugar Loaf communities were hit hard and damage is possible across the entire county. If you do not need to be on the roads tonight please stay home so crews can begin making repairs. The cleanup effort may take several days so as you travel tomorrow be mindful of those working to get things back to normal and understand there may be roads that are still partially blocked. Finally, remember not to call 911 to report storm damage. If you need non-emergency assistance (Law Enforcement, Fire, or EMS) please call 632-2911. Everyone stay safe and be patient as we all work together to move forward after this evening's storms.
