City SheriffThe Sheriff’s Office has received reports from citizens who have been contacted by a person claiming to be deputy sheriffs, IRS Agents, or other law enforcement personnel. The caller tells victims they have failed to comply with jury subpoenas, or have missed a court date and are subject to fines or arrest. In some cases the victims have been asked to get a Green Dot card from a store and call them with the card number or meet them at the Sheriff’s Office to make cash payments. This is a scam. The Roanoke Sheriff’s Office does not collect payments this way. Anyone receiving these calls should notify their local law enforcement agency.
