Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Jan. 14, 2015 9A Scammer impersonates officers Lassen and Plumas community members have been reporting suspicious phone calls from the Lassen County Sheriffs Office. Really, this is a scam intended to obtain personal and/or credit card information. Dale Knutsen forwarded an anonymous report to the Lake Almanor West Watch Group to Feather Publishing in an email Monday, Jan. 5. It read, "Today I received a telephone call from someone saying that they were officer Powers from the Lassen County Sherriffs Department and that there was a warrant out for my arrest fornot responding to an electronic notice." Apparently, the notice was supposedly for a grand jury report hearing. The caller had the intended victim's name and correct mailing address, but couldn't provide any additional information when questioned• The number the scammer was calling from appeared on caller ID as "private caller." The intended victim told the scammer to go ahead and send an officer to arrest him. The caller hung up. The sheriffs office told the receiver of the call that other calls of the same nature had been reported. The office advises anyone who receives this type of call not to give out any information. Anyone receiving a suspicious call from someone claiming to be an officer should hang up and report it to the real authorities at the Plumas or Lassen sheriffs office. Woman arrested in connection with string of burglaries Ann Powers Staff Writer A woman was arrested last week in connection with a rash of burglaries in the Lake Davis and Portola areas, according to the Plumas County Sheriffs Office• Detectives said Jennifer Michelle Hall, 28, was taken into custody Jan. 8 at 297 W. Spruce St. in Portola. She's charged with possession of stolen property. She was scheduled to be arraigned Monday, Jan. 12, in Plumas County Superior Court. "There's been 18 confirmed burglaries in the Portola and Lake Davis area and still counting." Chris Hendricks0n Detective, Plumas County Sheriff's Office "We received public tips that led us to Hall's residence," said Sheriffs Detective Chris Hendrickson. "We recovered a bunch of stolen property from the burglaries•" Numerous robbery complaints have been reported to the sheriffs office since last November. Stolen items include televisions, bedding, tools, electronics and other household goods. Many of the burglarized residences are second homes, which are commonly targeted by thieves during the holidays, added Hendricks0n. "There's been 18 confirmed burglaries in the Portola and Lake Davis area and still counting," he said. "It's convoluted: There are so many cases involved and it's going to take days before the report is completed." Officials are asking anyone with information about the break-ins, and anyone who has been victimized, to call the sheriff's office at 283-6363. i, i" . • .
