BRONSON, Fla. (WCJB) - Hackers have struck again, disabling the Levy County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency phone lines.

Over the summer, hackers first attacked the phone lines, disabling them for more than a week.

The culprits demanded a $1,000,000 ransom for the phones to be restored.

Monday evening on Facebook, the Sheriff’s Office announced the lines were hacked again.

Anyone who needs to contact the department can call 9-1-1 or send a message on the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.
