PHONE SCAM

The Sheriff’s Department has recently been made aware of a phone scam where residents are being called and told they missed their court dates/Jury duty and need to drive to the Sheriff’s Office and pay their fines over the phone.

THIS IS NOT LEGITIMATE.  Please do not give them any payment information, and do not drive in to the Sheriff’s Office.
