Scammers targeting McCracken County

A new scam is circling through McCracken County, Kentucky. Police say a phone scammer is claiming to work for the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department. The caller, who claims to be a “Sergeant Davis,” calls potential victims to inform them of a warrant out for their arrest. The caller offers steps for the potential victim to pay to have the warrant handled. McCracken County Sherriff’s Department says the department does not handle arrest warrants in this manner. Anyone who believes they’ve received a call from the scammer is asked to report it to the sheriff’s office.
