Scammer is posing as sheriff's deputy


The Dakota County Sheriff’s office and local law enforcement authorities have received numerous reports of an individual attempting to impersonate a Dakota County deputy sheriff.

The contacts typically involve a phone call from an individual who claims to be a Dakota County deputy sheriff. The caller informs the citizen that he/she had failed to serve their required time on jury duty and, therefore, a warrant would be issued for their arrest unless they pay a specific dollar amount
