Search For Fraudster Posing As Local Police Officer Continues

Posted:
Cortland County Sheriffs are still looking for a man who posed as an officer in efforts to solicit money.

They say they have received more complaints from residents saying an officer called them about owing money. The department released information about a complaint that came in on Saturday.

The suspect told people they needed to meet him in person and if the money wasn't paid, they would be arrested by the Cortland County Sheriff's Department. The suspect is not an officer.

Sheriffs want to remind you that they do not solicit money from anyone. They are asking that if you receive a similar call, hang up and notify police immediately.

The investigation is ongoing.
