The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two separate incidents that occurred Wednesday, May 20. In each incident, an unknown suspect or suspects contacted the victims and identified themselves as a detective form the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
The suspects advised the victims they had warrants for their arrest and they needed to send “bond money.” The victims were told a deputy would come to their residence and arrest them if money for bond was not posted immediately.
Livingston County Sheriff Mike Murphy said he would like to remind citizens within the community to be extra vigilant when people are calling and asking for money. “If there is any doubt to the validity of the request, hang up and contact your local law enforcement agency and report the incident right away,” he said.
As a reminder, law enfacement agencies will not make phones calls asking for any type of monetary funds.
