<p><strong>BEWARE OF PHONE SCAM</strong></p> <p>We have received reports of a scam artist who has been telling citizens they have a warrant because they did not show up for jury duty.&nbsp; The caller further threatens that there are outstanding fees and that law enforcement is coming to their house with an arrest warrant.&nbsp;</p> <p>Please know that if you are called for jury duty in Powell County you will receive a jury duty notice in the mail and a follow up call verifying you have received your notice.&nbsp; WE DO NOT ASK FOR MONEY OR THREATEN WARRANTS.&nbsp;</p> <p>Anyone who receives such a call is urged not to provide any information to the caller and to contact the Powell County Sheriff&rsquo;s Office at 406-846-2711.</p>
