BEWARE OF PHONE SCAM

 We have received reports of a scam artist who has been telling citizens they have a warrant because they did not show up for jury duty.  The caller further threatens that there are outstanding fees and that law enforcement is coming to their house with an arrest warrant. 

Please know that if you are called for jury duty in Powell County you will receive a jury duty notice in the mail and a follow up call verifying you have received your notice.  WE DO NOT ASK FOR MONEY OR THREATEN WARRANTS. 

Anyone who receives such a call is urged not to provide any information to the caller and to contact the Powell County Sheriff’s Office at 406-846-2711.
