Department of Public Safety warns of prank phone calls

A warning from the Department of Public Safety.

Apparently some Hawaii residents have been getting calls from people posing as Sheriff Deputies.

The callers say they’re serving warrants for people who didn’t show up for jury duty and they’ll clear the warrants if they pay them money.

The DPS says Deputy Sheriffs never call people about warrants having to do with jury duty or solicit the purchase of anything.

If this sounds familiar, and you got a call like this, call the Sheriff Division at 586-1352.
