Scam Being Reported in Allen County

The Allen County Sheriff’s Office has received several complaints from Allen County residents receiving phone calls from an individual claiming to be a Lieutenant from the Sheriff’s Office. 


The scam caller claims to have a warrant for the person answering the phone, then asks for private information and money. 


This is a scam.


This is not the way the Allen County Sheriff’s Office handles warrants. 


Should you receive one of these calls, do not give out any of your information.
