A man posing as a Reno County sheriff officer, demanding money for warrants, is a fraud.

Reno County authorities are warning residents of a scam involving a man identifying himself as "Capt. Kevin Williams." The man claims to work for the Reno County Sheriff's Office, and threatens arrest if people do not pay cash for an outstanding warrant.

Sheriff Randy Henderson, Reno County, said the department will never request money for a warrant or ticket. The payments go directly to the courts, not law enforcement officers, Henderson said.

Anyone who receives a call should ignore the caller's demands. Anyone concerned about warrants for arrest can call the warrant division office at 620-694-2735.
