Local police report separate scam alerts

Local News

(WFXR) – Two local agencies are reporting separate scams.

The first is from the Bedford Police Department who says that someone claiming to be an officer with the Bedford Police Department has been leaving messages with people about an outstanding arrest warrant.

In a separate scam, the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office says that an individual is contacting residents regarding a summons to appear in local court.

If you receive one of these calls, you are asked to simply hang up and report it to the local agency they claim to represent.
