Wright Co. Sheriff’s Office evaluating suspected phone scam

(Editor’s Note: The following information was gleaned from the Wright County website.)

On Tues., Nov. 7, the Wright County Sheriff’s Office took numerous calls from a concerned citizen who had been called by a male claiming to be a sergeant from the sheriff’s office. This person requested a call back from a number that was not a Buffalo phone number (763-341-3042.) Th e reporting person did the right thing and called their local police office. 

The Buffalo Police Dept. is also investigating a similar call. Remember that local deputies may call from time to time during an investigation. However, if one is not expecting a call from a deputy and are ever in doubt, contact the WCPD office at 763-682-1162 or their non-emergency dispatch number at 763-682-7600.
