Due to an increase in motor vehicle thefts in Hancock County in recent months, the Hancock County Sheriff’s office is requesting Hancock County residents and motor vehicle owners to please assure their motor vehicles are locked and the motor vehicle keys-fobs are secured at all times when not in use. Additionally, to not leave motor vehicles with the motor running and un-attended.

In recent months, several motor vehicles have been stolen in which the vehicle keys were easily accessible being in the ignition or console of unlocked vehicles.

We are sharing the following post by the Findlay PD. We have also received several calls this morning. Their post has a good explanation and tips regarding scam calls. Like the PD, the Sheriff's Office does not collect fines or take other court action by calling or showing up on your doorstep.

SCAM CALLS

This morning our dispatch center has taken several calls from citizens reporting that they are being contacted by members of the Findlay Police Department, or other law enforcement agencies. The caller reports that the person has missed jury duty and/or has a warrant and begins to ask for personal information followed by instructions to obtain gift cards to pay fines.

We’d like to take a moment to remind everyone that this is common phone scam and that law enforcement agencies will not contact you by phone to make payments. Any legal matter requiring a fine would be addressed through the mail and should be verified in person, or by contacting the court listed on the notice by a number that you have verified (not one listed on the notice).

Any request for gift cards should automatically be a red flag and is always a scam. Please do not provide personal information or financial information to these callers.

The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office has been receiving several calls about another Grand Jury scam. According to reports to our office many community members have received calls about not showing up to Grand Jury after signing for the certified letter saying they would appear. The reporting callers state that since they did not show up for Grand Jury they would need to report to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office to post a bond of $2,760.00 cash. The reporting callers advise that if the bond is not posted an arrest warrant will be issued for their arrest. The Sheriff’s Office would like everyone to be aware this type of call is a scam and to disconnect the call and as always never give out any personal information over the phone.
As many of you may know, a large amount of Toys for Tots donations were stolen from a storage unit recently, leaving the drive short on donations for this year. To help replenish the donations for local children, the Sheriff's Office has set up a donation location for Toys for Tots this year in our Lobby. The Courier ran a story this morning, and the response has been wonderful. Two boxes have already been filled and several sizable donations have been received. A huge thank you to all who have already donated. Donations can be dropped off 24/7 for the next 2 weeks. Have a wonderful Holiday Season!
