Pueblo, CO: Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of a telephone scam where callers, representing themselves as sheriff’s deputies, are telling individuals they must pay outstanding warrants or they will be arrested.

Several complaints have been received by the Sheriff’s Office in recent days regarding the threatening phone calls. The caller threatens to arrest the individual if they do not pay a warrant for missing a jury duty assignment. The phone number where the calls are originating is not a Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office number.

The Sheriff’s Office reminds individuals, it does not call the public and ask for payment of warrants or any other financial information. All bonds and fees must be paid in person.

Residents are reminded to never give personal or financial information over the phone unless they are certain it is a reputable source. If you are unsure whether the call is legitimate, hang up and call the agency to verify the legitimacy of the call.

Anyone who receives similar phone calls or who has information about the scam, contact the Sheriff’s Office at (719) 583-6250.
