A person identifying himself as Lt. John Roberts with the Howard County Sheriff's Office Warrant Division has been calling local residents advising them they have a warrant. They are given instructions to either take a sum of cash to a certain location to pay for the warrant, or they are told they can send the money by Western Union.
This is a SCAM, the Howard County Sheriff's Office does not have anyone employed by that name nor would we ask you to ever bring cash to a location. If you receive a call from this individual please contact the Howard County Sheriff's Office at 432-264-2244.
Sheriff Stan Parker
