Johnson County sheriff warns of phone scam demanding money for outstanding warrants

The scam involves a person calling from what appears to be the main, non-emergency dispatch telephone number. The swindler tells potential victims they have outstanding warrants. The caller, who claims to be with the sheriff’s office, then tells potential victims that they risk being arrested if they don’t give the caller money.
