Howard County - Howard County officials are warning residents about a phone scam.
The Sheriff's Department said a man claiming to be Lieutenant John Roberts is calling people and telling them they have warrants.
He then instructs people to take cash to a certain location or to pay by Western Union.
Officials say there is no one at the Howard County Sheriff's Department that goes by this name, and they would never collect payment in this manner.
If you have fallen victim to this scam call the Howard County Sheriff's Department.
