The sheriff’s office has issued a warning about a bogus Smith County captain demanding money for missing jury duty

The Smith County Sheriff’s Office has issued a warning after receiving many complaints from worried homeowners on Monday night.

The Smith County Sheriff’s Office, like any other law enforcement agency, will never phone and solicit for money.

According to the callers, an unknown person contacted and presented himself as Captain Craig Halbrooks of the Smith County Sheriff’s Office. The caller then informs the victim that he needs to speak with them about a criminal situation and that they owe money for missing jury duty. According to the sheriff’s office, this is not accurate.

Please don’t let yourself be taken advantage of by these people, and never disclose personal identifying information or financial information over the phone.

Adults should discuss this with senior citizens they know who they believe are too trusting of authorities, even over the phone or via text message.

In addition, never react to questionable SMS messages requesting this information.
