Alert: Scammer pretending to be Jackson Co. Sheriff's deputy

JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell is warning people to be cautious the next time the phone rings. Ezell said someone is calling residents and claiming to be Lt. Randy Muffley, with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.  

The caller claims there is a warrant out for your arrest, and if you don't pay a fine, you will be arrested. The calls are coming in from the number 228-224-0978. 

While there is a Lt. Muffley who works at the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, officials stress he will not call about an arrest warrant. 

If you get a call like this, do not give out any information. Instead, call the sheriffs office at 228-769-3063.
