On July 30, 2016 the Butte County Sheriff’s Office received several calls that a person claiming to be a Lieutenant with the Butte County Sheriff’s Office is notifying people by phone that they have failed to appear for a grand jury hearing and a warrant will be issued for his/her arrest unless he/she goes to Walgreens and sends the caller money.
The Butte County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public that neither the Butte County Sheriff’s Office, nor any other law enforcement agency will call individuals seeking money in lieu of issuing an arrest warrant for any violation of the law. If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from a law enforcement agency requesting that you send them money or a warrant will be issued for your arrest, it is a scam. If you get a call like this, notify your local law enforcement agency.
