SCAM ALERT / Impersonating a Police Officer

CHAMBERSBURG – CPD was alerted to a scam taking place in the area. A male suspect, identifying himself as Sgt. Ian Armstrong with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, is telling citizen’s that they have a warrant for their arrest.

This conversation, which becomes threatening, will lead to the suspect requesting payment over the phone to clear the warrant. Sgt. Armstrong is an active LEO with the Chambersburg Police Department and has no affiliation with the Sheriff’s Office. No Law Enforcement agency will request payment to clear a warrant. Anyone receiving a similar phone call is asked to please use caution.
