The Saline County Sheriff's Office warns residents that a male is calling residents and scamming them into giving him money.
The man claimed that people he calls failed to show up for jury duty and tells the victims they have an outstanding warrant, said Amanda Best, administrative assistant for the Saline County Sheriff's Office.
"The Saline County Sheriff's Office does not call and threaten to arrest you if you do not show up for jury duty," she said.
If individuals receive a similar call, they should contact the sheriff's office at 501-303-5609.
