Scam Alert

Recently we had a scam incident occur via telephone involving the impersonation of a Deputy Sheriff from our Sheriff's Office that resulted in $4500.00 being stolen from a resident using a "Bond Posting" scam. Bond is ONLY accepted in person at the Sheriff's Office by way of cash, money order, or credit card. We DO NOT solicit bond fees, fine payments, or charitable events over the telephone. We DO NOT accept or request Moneypak cards, iTunes cards, or other sources of financial payment other than those listed above to pay fines, fees, or post bonds.

Do not provide any personal information or provide financial compensation to anyone attempting to solicit money or information over the telephone. When in doubt or if it seems suspicious, hang-up and dial 911 to report the incident.
