 RECENT SCAM - O’Brien County - A local resident scammed out of $5,000 by a caller indicating they had won a  “prize from Publishers Clearing House.  All they had to do was send them $25,000. They did but then recalled the check and the caller phoned them back and ended up getting them to send a $5,000 check!

Sheriff Michael Anderson presented 911 Communications Dispatcher Patricia Hedinger a Certificate of Appreciation for 25 years of service to the citizens of O’Brien County recently. CONGRATULATIONS to Pat. Keep up the good work!
