The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two separate incidents that occurred May 20, 2020. In each incident, an unknown suspect or suspects contacted the victims and identified themselves as a detective from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
The victims were told there was a warrant out for their arrest, and that they needed to send “bond money.” The victims were then told a deputy would come to their home and arrest them if money for the “bond” was not posted immediately.
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office reminds residents to be extra-vigilant when people call and ask for money. If there is any doubt as to the validity of a request, residents are advised to end the call, and then contact their local law enforcement agency and report the incident as soon as possible.
As a reminder, law enforcement agencies will not make phone calls asking for any type of monetary funds.
