Scam Alert: False Warrants

It has been brought to our attention that someone is attempting to scam citizens by claiming they are with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and are using Lt. Tim Walker’s name. The scammers tell victims that they have a case where there is an arrest warrant with a preset bond and if you were to send money through Western Union, an app, or website, the case would be taken care of. This is not how we do business. If you receive a call from 770-545-6452 or 770-917-3162, please ignore the request and do not send them any money. If you have already received one of these calls please contact the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office to file a report.
