Crook Co. Sheriff’s Office issues warning over recent phone scam


Crook County Sheriff’s Office warned folks on Tuesday about a recent phone scam involving a person identifying as a sheriff’s office employee. 

Lt. Bill Elliott said the person has been placing calls around Crook County, attempting to gain money by making people believe a judge is signing a warrant for their arrest. 

“This is a scam call and please DO NOT give them any information that you cannot confirm,” Elliot said in a press release. 

The Sheriff’s Office said they would not ever request money or credit card information in exchange for not issuing a warrant.
