(ALBION) - The Noble County Sheriffs Department is alerting residents about a reported phone scam. They say someone reported they got a voice mail from a man with a Middle Eastern accent who said he was a police officer and that they had an arrest warrant. They told the person who reported the phone call that a return call was needed. The number that had to be called was in New York. The caller ID indicated the call was coming from the Noble County Sheriffs Department. Upon a return phone call, the Sheriffs Department says an automated service says you have reached the Department of State Investigations and that you should leave a voice message. The Noble County Sheriffs Department says they do not attempt to serve arrest warrants over the phone. If you get a similar call, don't give out personal information over the phone. Instead, you should contact the Sheriffs Department as soon as possible.
