Shasta County Calif.—The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office would like to make the public aware of an “Outstanding Warrant” phone scam.

The reporting party received a call from a person identifying himself as Sergeant Stokes with the Sheriff’s Office saying there was a warrant for his arrest.

The reporting party was instructed to drive to a local grocery store where he could send the money and wait for further instructions.

Shasta County Sheriff’s Office does not call people with warrants in attempt to collect fines or bail.

Shasta County Sheriff’s would like to remind the community to always protect private identifying information such as, social security numbers, birthdays, and private passwords.

If you receive a similar phone call, you are encouraged not to cooperate with the caller, record the incoming phone number, and notify local law enforcement.
