Four people have been arrested on multiple charges after a house near a Buncombe County school was condemned on Wednesday, according to the sheriff's office.

The Buncombe County Sheriff's Office and members of the Buncombe County Permits and Inspections and Environmental Control departments conducted a follow-up investigation at 10 Harbinger Rd., which is behind A.C. Reynolds High School.

On Wednesday, officials condemned two buildings, which were deemed unsuitable for living in, on the property during the investigation, according to Bailey.

In addition to the buildings being condemned, Bailey said four people were arrested.

Billy Hoffman Jr. was charged with possession of stolen vehicle, possession of methamphetamine, possession of less than a half ounce of marijuana and possession of stolen goods/property.
