On March 3rd 2016, we started receiving phone calls from concerned citizens advising that there was a man who said his name was Deputy Robert Conner/Zach Miller and he claimed to be with the Monroe County Sheriff's Department that was calling them and saying that they had missed jury duty and a warrant was going to be issued unless they went to Kroger and purchased either an electronic voucher or a prepaid debit card with $1,000 on it. The target area was Brinkley. We want to make you aware that this is a scam that is being investigated. If a person claiming to be a law enforcement officer calls you asking for money and you are unsure about anything, please do not hesitate to call the Sheriff's Department and we will be happy to clear things up for you.
