"We've been told by [the hackers] we need to pay two bitcoin, or $23,000 for them to give us the de-encryption to have the servers released and the files returned to us", says Diorio.
"It will take time, but with patience and hard work, all of our systems will be back up and running as soon as possible", Diorio added.
Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Anjanette Flowers Grube said in an email that deputies are manually processing suspects who have been arrested because its computer system was affected.
WBTV has learned the hackers are demanding substantially more money than first reported, according to sources.
It is still not clear whether the county will pay the ransom.

Third-party experts retained by the county believe the ransomware is "a new strain" known as "LockCrypt", and "very little is known about it", the county manager said. She said the county acted quickly to shut down services to prevent the spread of the virus after it was discovered.
The shutdown is affecting email, printing and other county applications, including the ability to conduct business at most county offices.
