CASS COUNTY, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The Cass County Sheriff’s Office says their office has received multiple reports this week of a scammer identifying themselves as “Hunter Noogan” with the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies want to remind you to remain vigilant. If someone calls you identifying themselves as a deputy with the Cass County Sheriff’s Office, you can hang up, call central dispatch at (701) 451-7660 and request to speak with the deputy.

An important reminder for the public regarding warrants:

At times, Cass County personnel will place phone calls notifying individuals of a warrant in an attempt to set up a court appearance. However, under no circumstances is bond payment requested by sheriff’s office personnel over the telephone and/or in any form other than cash. The Cass County Sheriff’s Office will accept payment on a warrant; however, the bond must be paid in cash and must be done at the courthouse. If you have any questions regarding an active warrant and/or the validity of a phone call being notified of an active warrant, the sheriff’s office encourages you to call their warrant division at: (701) 241-1283.
