The sheriff's office says they've received a number of complaints from residents saying they've received a phone call from a person claiming to be an employee of the sheriff's office.

The caller, who has a southern accent, says the person was summoned for jury duty and that they failed to appear and a warrant will be issued for their arrest unless they pay a fine using MoneyPak gift cards.

The sheriff's office says the scammer is calling from the phone number 763-309-6069, which is not associated with the sheriff's office.
