The Lac qui Parle Sheriff’s Office continues to get reports of various phone scams. Last week, a Chippewa County resident received a phone call from an area cell phone in which the caller stated they were from the Lac qui Parle Sheriff’s Office. They then proceeded to try to scam the person into giving out credit card information. The Sheriff’s Office reminds residents to never give such personal information over the phone.
Lac qui Parle Sheriff’s deputies also responded last week to a report of someone screaming for help from a canoe in the water. It ended up being a prank.
