The Russell Springs Police Department is warning residents of a scam that is targeting elderly residents in the community.
Several people have received letters in the mail recently that appear to be coming from the Russell Springs City Council soliciting donations to the police department.
Russell Springs Police Chief Bryan Shepard says these letters are a scam.
If you receive one of these letters, do not send any money and contact Russell Springs Police. Anyone with questions is asked to contact the Russell Springs Police Department at 270-866-3636.
