ALEXANDRIA, La. (RPSO) - The Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office has been notified by several citizens that they were contacted by a scammer who alleged they had active warrants for their arrest.

RPSO reminds citizens that law enforcement will NEVER contact you by phone and threaten arrest in lieu of payment. Nor will they inquire about personal information such as your date of birth, social security number, home address, etc.

If anyone calls you soliciting money alleging you have warrants for your arrest DO NOT send them any money. Contact local law enforcement and report these calls.
