Laurel County Sheriff Warns of Another Phone Scam

Laurel County Sheriff John Root is warning citizens of a phone scam asking for money. In a Facebook post, Sheriff Root reports the caller identifies as the Sheriff’s Captain and tells people to pay money for not reporting to jury duty. Sheriff Root says the Sheriff’s office never calls people on the phone demanding money for a case, a warrant, or jury duty. He says never give out personal identifying information or financial information over the phone. The Laurel County Sheriff’s Office is continuing its investigation.
