Worcester Co. Sheriff’s Office warning public of phone scam


WORCESTER COUNTY, Md. – The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office is warning the public about a phone scam.

The Sheriff’s Office says several community members are reporting suspicious phone calls from someone claiming to be a Lieutenant with the agency. In the call, police say the “Lieutenant” will tell the person they have warrants, and instructs them to call a number to have the warrants taken care of.

Police are reminding the public that no police agency will ever call anyone to inform them of warrants that need to be taken care of. If you do receive a suspicious call, you are asked to not give out any personal information, and call the police to report the incident.
