The Russell County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of a recent scam going around.

According to Sheriff Derek Polston, scammers are calling local residents and telling them that an arrest warrant has been issued to them for not reporting to jury duty.

Polston said these calls are not coming from any law enforcement agency and advises people to avoid giving these individuals any personal information or sending them any money.

Polston said he encourages residents to hang up the phone immediately if they receive one of these calls and contact the Russell County Sheriff’s Office at 270-343-2191.
