State Police are warning about a phone scam. Someone claiming to be a deputy in the State Police warrant division is calling Hoosiers telling them they have a warrant, and if the person didn‘t call back they would be arrested.
A voicemail message was left from the scammer, but the call went to an actual State Police detective. The detective called the scammer and spoke for 30 minutes before the scammer believed he was speaking to the police.
No arrests were made, but the investigation into the scam is ongoing.
