Roanoke-County-Logo The Roanoke County Police Department and the Roanoke County Sheriff’s Office say they are again receiving numerous complaints in reference to the jury duty scam. What happens is, a person claiming to be a Roanoke County Sheriff’s Deputy calls you to tell you you’ve missed jury duty and there’s now a warrant out for your arrest. The person will then say if you want to avoid going to jail you need to buy a Green Dot card and give them the number off of the card. Investigators want to remind you that law enforcement would not solicit any type of payment. If you receive one of these calls you should call the Criminal Investigations Division of the Roanoke County Police at 540-777-8641, the Emergency Communication Center at 540-562-3265 or the Roanoke Valley Crime Line at 540-344-8500.
