A man on Nowhere Road told Deputy Larry MacKay that he had received a call from someone claiming he had an IRS warrant for his arrest.
The man said he told the caller he should contact his mother, who is an accountant and who handles his tax information. The caller then hung up. His mother told him it was a scam and to call the sheriff’s office.
MacKay told him that the IRS would have contacted him by mail first, as well as his tax preparer, if there were issues with his return.
He said he may have given the caller his Social Security Number and was told to notify credit bureaus.

•Harassing phone calls were reported on Garnett Ward Road.

•An argument at the high school between two students continued after school when one of the male students and several of his friends traveled by vehicles over to the freshman parking lot where they met with the other student he had been arguing with, along with his older brother. They were waiting for a ride to pick them up.
Some words were exchanged again and one of the boys grabbed a pipe of some type out of his vehicle and started yelling, “ I will kill you p*&&^” “ and “don’t let me catch you alone.” Several of the boys with him allegedly told him not continue to do that and they then left the parking lot. Resource officer Mark Jerome charged the boy with having a weapon on school grounds and disorderly conduct.
•Deputy Taylor Arrendale was dispatched to Moriah Church Road on Feb. 6 concerning a disorderly person with a knife. Upon arrival he met with five people at the scene. One of the men told him that a woman in the group became angry for an unknown reason and believed he was out to get her. She allegedly grabbed a knife and threw it to the ground. The woman said she was in the process of moving out and that the man got in her face acting as if he was going to hit her. She said she already had the knife in her hand, which she said she was using in her packing. She said the only reason the man had called 9-1-1 was because he wanted her out of the house. The other woman in the group backed her up in her story.
