Man Posed As Cortland Officer To Solicit Money

By Fox 40 News Staff.
Cortland County Sheriffs are on the hunt for a man who posed as an officer in efforts to solicit money.

Cortland Sheriffs say that they received a complaint on Saturday from a man who says an officer called him and told him that he owed money.

The suspect who posed has an officer told the man that they needed to meet in person and if the money wasn't paid, that he would be arrested by the Cortland County Sheriff's department.

The suspect was not a Cortland County Officer and the Sheriff's department wants to remind you that they do not solicit money from anyone. Authorities are asking that if you receive a similar call, to hang up and notify the police immediately.

Authorities are still attempting to locate and identify the man responsible for this call.
