Warrant Scam Returns To Deschutes County

BEND, OR -- Authorities are again warning of an uptick in calls from scammers claiming to be with local law enforcement. 


In several calls in the past week, the man identifies himself as “Detective Garcia with the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office” and asks for money to clear a warrant issued after missing jury duty or court. 
The Sheriff's office reminds everyone that law enforcement does not ask for money to clear a legal matter. Central Oregonians have fallen for the scam in the past and authorities encourage people to remain vigilant, share the information with others and report such calls to non-emergency dispatch at 541-693-6911.
