LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - The Lee County Sheriff's Office has received reports from citizens who are being called by an individual who identifies himself as "Sergeant Miller" with the Lee County Sheriff's Office.

He states that a warrant has been or will be issued for the person called for failing to appear at the Grand Jury. He then says that if the person will go to Kroger and obtain a "Surety Bond" then the matter will be cleared from the record.

The caller mentions Lee County judges including District Judge Bush and retired District Judge Nix. A common number the calls originate from is 334-734-6506 but other numbers may be used.

This is a scam phone call. The Sheriff's Office never calls individuals with outstanding warrants and makes an offer to clear the charges if payments are made.

Everyone is advised to end the call, block the number and delete the call from their phone.
