*SCAM ALERT* Imposter caller claiming to be Lt. Justin De Bruin

Residents in northwest Iowa have been receiving phone calls from an imposter claiming to be Lieutenant Justin De Bruin with our office.

While Lieutenant De Bruin is a legitimate employee, he has not been calling numerous people today asking for gift cards.

The imposter is telling victims that they missed federal jury duty and a warrant is being issued for their arrest unless they supply the scammer with numbers from a gift card in the amount of $3,000. 

The Sheriff’s Office will never call anyone and ask for money; please do not send money or gift cards to these people. This is a scam and do not give out any of your information.
