There have been reports of scammers making phone calls to the public stating that they are a deputy with The Columbia County Sheriff's Office with a warrant for arrest, and for that person to pay money in order not to be arrested.

The Columbia County Sheriff's Office will NEVER call and solicit money that way.

Residents can check the Sheriff's Office website at https://www.columbiacountysheriffar.org/warrants.php to check for current warrants.
