Crime Alert: We've had a few reports of package thefts in our area. As we get closer to the holiday season, the risk of package and even mailbox thefts will likely increase. Here are some tips to keep from becoming a victim!

1. Have packages delivered to your work.
2. Schedule deliveries for times you will be home.
3. Buddy up with a neighbor!
4. Require a signature.
5. Consider investing in a Smart Locker
6. Have the packages delivered to a local delivery store (UPS store, FedEx store etc)
7. Only mail money or financial documents at a Post Office instead of dropping them into your home mailbox.
8. Promptly pick up your mail or have a locking mailbox.

I have my packages delivered to a friend's house. Been dealing with my packages getting stolen for awhile.

Well I'll be looking into other places to deliver my crap....

Thank You for Information !

Everyone remove your “Beware of dog” signs and sit back and wait 😂

Just add BEWARE OF OWNER sign with the picture of a 45 auto on it!

Y’all should co a calendar with photos of the officers and dogs and cats for a fundraiser ! I would buy one

I’ve got your next community gathering figured out. #detectivesndogs

Those dogs would look pretty funny in speedos, Melanie!

We have two separate scam warnings for our area.
The first is a caller claiming to be with the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office. The caller is telling people that they’ve missed a required jury duty and now owe a fine. This is absolutely a SCAM. The Sheriff’s Office will not call you about such issues, and definitely will NOT demand payment over the phone! One caller identified himself as “Lieutenant Wells” and claimed that “Judge Kemp” had issued the fine. Yeah ok…both of those guys are fictitious characters!

The second scam is a caller claiming to be with the Hardin Count Detention Center. He is calling people and then telling them to call another number about an issue. In all likelihood, they are using an app to mimic the phone number of the actual Hardin County Detention Center. Do NOT respond or call the number. They are attempting to scam people by claiming that a relative or friend is incarcerated and needs money.

As always, don’t trust the source of any phone calls that are asking for personal information or money. Never give out personal or financial information over the phone unless you initiated a call to a trusted source!

So this african prince is not sending me millions for only a few hundred dollars?

My son is incarcerated and I did get that phone call telling me to call another number. But I don’t get involved with my sons problems. So I was lucky to ignore the call

Just got a call from 14106181326 stating my social security number would be blocked as of today if I did not call this number back smh they said they were the social security office so thats another scam going around too ...

I had a number call me claiming that I have an arrest warrant and to give them a call back if I am innocent. So I called back and they answered as the “IRS” ( I already knew it was a scam). I asked them about my arrest warrant and told them that I have the FBI on the line if they would like to explain my warrant and they hung up and blocked my number. 😂😂😂😂

I miss you Elizabeth town. When I was there 4 or 5 years ago I had the time of my life going to all the little historic buildings especially the old downtown was a blast. I miss the place mate. I wish I can come back one day.

Everybody knows the sherriff office runs more complex scams than a simple phone call.Lol

Wait, so you're saying the police department DOESN'T accept iTunes cards to cover fines!?

I love these, I always just tell them to come get me 😂😂

I had a call said I was to receive a grant which I would not have to pay back all I was to do was call this number and answer a few questions so I did and this foreigner said he was with a client he would call me back so he did and the first thing he said was"Do you want this money or not" very hateful like I told him I had a couple of questions and once again he said "do you want this money" once again I said I had a couple questions first then he really got upset and said"Don't call this number again.do you hear me and I hung up and called my bank and cancelled my bank card just everyone be careful there is lots of scammers out there

Anyone calling wanting money should be hung up on. Scammers, telemarketers, debt collectors, friends, and especially family lol

Thanks for the heads up you guys are great

Thanks for the heads up!!

Not sure if this is a common one but my husband got a call saying that if we didn't pay our Vine Grove Water bill today, our water would be shut off. We have Hardin County water, in my name with my phone number, which was paid earlier this month. These scammers will try anything. Is Vine Grove Water even a thing?

Only if you can go to Wal-Mart and get a money card and get it to him fast Robert Sheogorath Walrath
