Jackson County 911 has received several calls from citizens that have received calls from allegedly Captain Bucky Thomas with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office. The caller, who is not Captain Thomas, proceeds to tell them they missed their court date and they need to go to CVS or Kroger and get a green dot money card.
“This is very concerning that these SCAMMERS/THIEVES are now using the name of a Jackson County Sheriff's Office Captain,” Sheriff Janis Mangum said. “We have five captains but no one will call you from the sheriff's office asking you to send money because of not reporting to jury duty. Please call 911 to report this immediately. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the sheriff's office, at 706 367-8718.”
