If you get a phone call from someone claiming to be a LaPorte County Sheriff’s deputy it could be a scam.
Residents are reporting they have been receiving calls from a Chesterton phone number where the caller either claims to be a deputy or states they are calling on behalf of the agency.
The scammer alleges the agency has property that belongs to them or the citizen has missed jury duty and an arrest warrant has been issued.
The sheriff’s office say if you have  concerns about the validity of the caller, ask for a full name and extension number. Then, hang up and call the sheriff’s office directly.
