Your Bowie County Sheriff's Office was busy last week fielding calls about someone trying to get money over the phone and telling everyone he was with the BCSO. No, he is not. Details on this 'SCAM Alert' are below along with your weekly Bowie County Sheriffs Report as prepared by Chief Deputy Robby McCarver. This report is for the week of 2/21 - 2/27, 2022.

The Bowie County Sheriff's Office has been receiving calls from several citizens stating that they had been contacted by someone claiming to be "Lt. Johnson" from the Bowie County Sheriff's Office. "Lt. Johnson" then advises that there has been a warrant issued out of Bowie County for their arrest. He has instructed our citizens to purchase Green Dot cards and provide the numbers to avoid arrest. "Lt. Johnson" is calling from 903.231.5883 and that number is being traced down currently. The Bowie County Sheriff's Office will never request anyone to purchase any type of gift card to avoid arrest. We do not contact citizens and provide payment by phone options to avoid arrests. This is a SCAM. There is not even a "Lt. Johnson" working for the Bowie County Sheriff's Office. If anyone has a question about the validity of a phone call coming from the Bowie County Sheriff's Office, please contact us at our non-emergency phone numbers of 903.798.3149 (for Texarkana) or 903.628.6815 (for New Boston). Someone at either location can verify who works for our office. Also, never provide anyone that you do not know money over the phone in this fashion. If you do, the money is gone as soon as the card numbers are provided and there is no way for it to be recovered.

If you receive a similar call from "Lt. Johnson" it is a SCAM. Do not cooperate with the requests and simply hang up.
