Recent phone scam targets elderly
Placeholder Image
Two incidences of a phone scam have been reported in Dawson County in the past few weeks, an issue Sheriff Jeff Johnson says should put senior citizens on high alert. Recently, a local couple reported to the Dawson County Sheriff's Office that they had been contacted and told that their grandson was arrested. The caller reportedly said that if an attorney wasn't paid immediately, their grandson would be sent to prison.
