Sylacauga Police Department warns of phone scams

SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The Sylacauga Police Department is warning individuals to beware of phone scammers.

SPD received a call after a local resident received a phone call from an unknown person claiming to be Chief Kelley Johnson from the Sylacauga Police Department.

The caller told the resident that they needed to pay an amount of money over the phone or a warrant would be issued and they would be arrested.

In a press release, Chief Johnson stated that law enforcement officers are not collectors of fines or court cost for any crime or violation.  The Court is responsible for collection of payments and they too will not call to solicit a payment for fines.

If you have any information pertaining to a crime, please contact the Sylacauga Police Department Investigations Division @ 256-401-2464 or you may report anonymously to the Sylacauga Police Department Tip Line @ 256-249-4716.
