Officials with the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office are warning area residents of a scam involving an imposter posing as one of the department's own employees.
According to Chief Deputy Matt Rice, the sheriff's office has received several reports of someone posing as a sheriff's office employee and calling citizens to inform them they have been selected for jury duty, but missed their reporting date.
The imposter reportedly tells the person they have a warrant for their arrest, and they should go to the ATM for cash or to Walmart for a money card.
The caller will then ask that the victim either call them back with the card number or meet them somewhere to deliver the cash and pay for the warrant.
"This is a scam," Rice said in a Wednesday night press release. "The Faulkner County Sheriff's Office will not call you and ask for money or meet you on the side of the road for a payment."
The case is currently under investigation and anyone with information or anyone who has received one of the calls is asked to contact the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office at 501-450-4914.
