The Houston County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of another phone scam hitting the area.  This time the scammer is posing as a Houston County Sheriff’s deputy that is telling victims they have a warrant for their arrest and they must pay money over the phone to avoid going to jail.  If you have received a call like this, report it to the Houston County sheriff’s office on their non-emergency number.
