PRINEVILLE, OR -- The law enforcement warrant scam is making the rounds in Crook County. The Sheriff’s Office says they've received reports from residents contacted by a man with a noticeable accent, or an automated voice; callers claim there is a warrant for the person’s arrest and they request payment to avoid problems. Prineville Police have received similar reports in recent days. 

 

Some calls claim to be from the Crook County Sheriff’s Office, others from the FBI. Often the caller ID shows a local number. But, authorities warn this is a scam and warrant notifications are made in-person by a deputy in uniform.
