SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The Pennington County sheriff’s office is warning of a telephone scam.

Authorities say a caller is posing as a member of the warrants division and telling people they have to make a payment to avoid being arrested for failing to report for jury duty.

The person has identified himself on several occasions as Lt. Tom Andrews. There is no such person in the department.

Officials say the sheriff’s department does not ask for payments over the phone to clear warrants.
