The Sheriff's Office has received reports from the 12th Judicial District Jury Commissioner of a recent phone scam.
Several Saguache County residents have received a calls from an unknown person who indicated that he was with the Sheriff's Office and that there was an Arrest Warrant for the individual for not showing up for Jury Duty.
The person was told that the bond was $925.00 and that the person needed to pay the amount in the form of a cashiers check. The caller gave a phone number to confirm the Warrant and it was eventually routed to the Conejos County Sheriff's Office.
The Jury Commissioner and the Saguache County along with the Conejos County Sheriff's Office wants citizens to know that this is a scam. DO NOT pay/send any money!
if the Jury Commissioner requires your presence in Court, you will receive a Jury Notice by mail or will be served personally by a Sheriff's Deputy.
If you have any concerns please call the Jury Commissioners, 719-589-7602 or the Saguache Sheriff's Office 719-655-2525.
