Local News

The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office is warning people of a new jury duty scam. 

The scam even uses the name of a real ACSO deputy, deputy Sharp.

A person calls to threaten arrest, claiming you missed jury duty before asking for money.

Anderson County Sheriff Russell Barker says the sheriff’s office will never call saying you missed jury duty. ACSO implores residents to hang if they receive a phone call matching this description.
