Hays Co. Officials Warn Residents About Law Enforcement Impersonator

Updated: Tuesday, August 19 2014, 03:26 PM CDT

Officials in Hays County are warning residents about a law enforcement impersonator.

According to the Hays County Sheriff's Office, a man reportedly made calls and identified himself as a Hays County Warrants Officer.

The man allegedly stated that he was collecting an outstanding warrant amount. The man then instructed the person to get a prepaid credit card or gift card and call him back with the number to take care of the warrant. If the person did not do as asked, the man said the person would be arrested.

Hays County officials say they do not conduct any type of warrant collection by telephone. They urge residents to call the Sheriff's Office if they believe they have been victimized by this type of fraud.

Anyone with information regarding this case should contact the Hays County Sheriff's Office at 512-393-7896 or you may contact the Hays County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-324-TIPS (8477). You may also submit your information electronically from the link on the Hays County Crime Stoppers website or by using the free "TipSubmit" application from a smart phone.

Should your information lead to the arrest and indictment of the suspect(s), you will be eligible for a CASH reward of up to $1,000. All calls are confidential and callers will remain anonymous. You do not have to give your name and you will not have to testify in court.
