SCAM ALERT: Calls Related to an Arrest Warrant

Information has been received by the Cathedral City Police Department that someone is calling citizens at random and telling them they are a police sergeant with the Cathedral City Police Department and they have an arrest warrant for them.  They are then requesting money or giving directions to deposit money into an account. This is not true, it is a SCAM.  The Cathedral City Police Department – nor any other police department – will demand money for an arrest warrant, in lieu of jail.  Warrants are paid at the court – not to a police officer!  Please disregard any phone calls or callers making these claims.  The Cathedral City Police Department will not call you and notify you of a warrant and will not threaten to arrest you if you do not pay for the warrant.  This is a SCAM.
