Arrest Warrant Scam Circulating Around Kittitas County

Posted: Updated:
KITTITAS COUNTY, WA - Residents may want to watch out for an arrest warrant scam circulating around the Kittitas County.

The Kittitas County Sheriff's Office says a caller has been telling people they are from the Kittitas County Courts or from Law Enforcement, telling people they have an arrest warrant out for failing to appear in court or jury duty. The caller then asks for money to take the warrant out of the system.

Deputies say law enforcement does not collect money for bail outside of the jail. The local Courts do not call for an arrest warrant, instead a mandatory appearance in front of a judge is required.

Anyone who has received this phone call should report it to their local law enforcement.
