2/26/2019 - SCAM ALERT: IMPERSONATING A LEWISTON POLICE OFFICER

If you receive a call from someone claiming to be with the Lewiston Police Department saying they have an outstanding warrant for your arrest and that they need you to pay a fine with gift cards, DO NOT give them your personal information and/or payment.

“We would never call someone to tell them we have a warrant, and we would not ask them to pay for fines with a gift card,” Lt. Jeff Klone said.

The scammer could also try to trick you by disguising their phone number on your caller ID display with the department fax number: 208-746-6179.

If you believe you have fallen victim to this scam, please call the Lewiston Police Department at 208-746-0171.
