Scam Phone Calls

Within the past few days we have been informed by a number of people in LaSalle who have received phone calls and voicemails stating that there is a warrant for their arrest. Thankfully none of the phone call recipients have fallen victim to this scam. They have, however, asked us to publicize this scam to prevent other residents from being fearful that they will be arrested or scammed out of their money. Be aware that you will NEVER receive a phone call from a police service that tells you that there is a warrant for your arrest, and you need to send money to resolve the issue. If you do receive such a call, you can hang up the phone and nothing will happen to you. If in doubt please feel free to call LaSalle Police Service at 519-969-5210 and we will happily reassure you.
