WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Andover Police Department issued a warning Monday, May 10, about a scam in which a caller pretends to be a sergeant with the department in their attempt to steal personal information.

Andover police said the “sergeant” advises the person they are calling that they were in contempt of court, have been found guilty by a federal grand jury and that an agent is on the way to arrest them.

The scammer than attempts to verify personal information.

“If you receive a call like this, do not give out any information and just hang up,” the Andover PD said. “Then call your local police department and report the call.”
