CHARDON -- Geuaga County Chief Deputy Scott Hildenbrand wants all resident to be aware of a local scam asking for money.
Hildenbrand says the Geauga County Sheriff's Office is not involved with the Lake Geauga FOP #16 in raising money for "Shop with a Cop," "Sheriff's Office Yearbook" or any other fund raiser on behalf of the Geauga County Sheriff's Office.
If you receive a call from someone asking for a donation on behalf of the Geauga County Sheriff's Office for any of these or other fund raisers, do not give them any money.
He warns that they will ask to pick up the money and are using the name Mike Davis.
If you have given them any money, please call your local Police Department or Sheriff's Office. They may use other names. We are currently investigating this crime.
