REDMOND, OR -- Redmond area residents have been receiving phone calls from a man who identifies himself as 'Sergeant Cook' from either the Redmond Police Department or the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office.
The imposter advises whoever answered the phone they have an existing warrant and will suggest payment in lieu of arrest.
Redmond Police and the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office want to assure the public they don't make phone calls to individuals, nor do they request money over the phone.
If you receive a call like this, it is a scam.
Don't provide any personal information to the caller and hang up.
