TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Office released a statement Wednesday warning of people calling and impersonating a law enforcement officer. According to police, phone calls are being made to Tippecanoe County citizens by a person portraying to be a member of the Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Department.

Citizens are being told they have a warrant or writ for their arrest or have missed a court date and are being asked for payments to settle the matter. 

The Tippecanoe County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind people they do not contact people by telephone and ask for payment for warrants, writs, missed court dates or jury duty.

This same type of scan occurred earlier this year as well.
