SCOTT COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) -The Scott County Sheriff’s office says an influx of innocent people have turned themselves in to deputies after receiving a scam call saying there was a warrant for their arrest.

Investigators are receiving reports that a person identifying himself as Lt. Kevin Price is calling people from a 502 area code and instructing people to come to the Sheriff’s Office and pay fines associated with warrants.

The Scott Co. Sheriff says that no one will call you about warrants or ask for a payment over the phone. If you have warrants, a deputy will meet you in person.
