Sheriff's office warns of phone scam

PEORIA COUNTY - The Peoria County Sheriff's office is alerting citizens of a current telephone scam that has recently restarted. 

Peoria County Sheriff Brian Asbell said residents are receiving phone calls that state they have criminal allegations against them, specifically warrants, and are requesting money to resolve the issue.

The sheriff's office said these calls are scams, and that they will never call anybody to collect money over the phone.

Those who have questions on something they come across that appears to be a scam can call the Peoria County Sheriff’s Investigative Division at (309) 697-7822.
