LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – The Pulaski County Sheriff's Office warns of a scammer posing as one of their employees.

Lt. Carl Minden said someone claiming to be "Lt. Ron Davis" with the Sheriff's Office contacted someone in the county and said he had two outstanding warrants and if he didn't pay $580 he would be arrested.

The victim told the scammer he didn't have the money, but the scammer told him he would provide him with a card he can put the money on to take care of the issue.
