Napa County Sheriff's Department News

Don't forget, tax season is scam season too! Here is some helpful information borrowed from the IRS webpage regarding their operations and scams: Scammers make unsolicited calls. Thieves call taxpayers claiming to be IRS officials. They demand that the victim pay a bogus tax bill. They con the victim into sending cash, usually through a prepaid debit card or wire transfer. They may also leave “urgent” callback requests through phone “robo-calls,” or via phishing email. •Callers try to scare their victims. Many phone scams use threats to intimidate and bully a victim into paying. They may even threaten to arrest, deport or revoke the license of their victim if they don’t get the money. •Scams use caller ID spoofing. Scammers often alter caller ID to make it look like the IRS or another agency is calling. The callers use IRS titles and fake badge numbers to appear legitimate. They may use the victim’s name, address and other personal information to make the call sound official. •Cons try new tricks all the time. Some schemes provide an actual IRS address where they tell the victim to mail a receipt for the payment they make. Others use emails that contain a fake IRS document with a phone number or an email address for a reply. These scams often use official IRS letterhead in emails or regular mail that they send to their victims. They try these ploys to make the ruse look official. The IRS will not: •Call you to demand immediate payment. The IRS will not call you if you owe taxes without first sending you a bill in the mail. •Demand that you pay taxes and not allow you to question or appeal the amount you owe. •Require that you pay your taxes a certain way. For instance, require that you pay with a prepaid debit card. •Ask for your credit or debit card numbers over the phone. •Threaten to bring in police or other agencies to arrest you for not paying. If you don’t owe taxes, or have no reason to think that you do: •Do not give out any information. Hang up immediately. •Contact TIGTA to report the call. Use their “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” webpage. You can also call 800-366-4484. •Report it to the Federal Trade Commission. Use the “FTC Complaint Assistant” on Please add "IRS Telephone Scam" in the notes. If you know you owe, or think you may owe tax: •Call the IRS at 800-829-1040. IRS workers can help you. Phone scams first tried to sting older people, new immigrants to the U.S. and those who speak English as a second language. Now the crooks try to swindle just about anyone. And they’ve ripped-off people in every state in the nation.

On behalf of Sheriff John Robertson, the Napa County Sheriff’s Office would like to announce the retirement of Captain Keith Behlmer. Keith, known to all as “Boomer” began his law enforcement career with the Napa County Sheriff’s Office in September 1986. He left us briefly in 1993 and returned in November of 1997. In his nearly 32 years of law enforcement experience, Keith served in multiple areas of the Sheriff’s Office, including: NSIB, Valley Patrol, Court Security, the City of American Canyon and the Town of Yountville, to name a few. Keith was most widely recognized as a career long member of the Sheriff’s Special Weapons and Tactics Team (S.W.A.T.), where he spent many years as a team member, leader and commander. Sheriff John Robertson had the following to say about Keith, “Boomer’s commitment and dedication to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office and our Community was incredible. Known for his passion for tactical law enforcement, it was an honor to work with Captain Behlmer”. Keith’s official last day is Friday March 9th. Please join us in congratulating Keith on a well-deserved retirement!

On March 03 2018 shortly after midnight, while driving through the area of 1st Street and Freeway Drive, a Napa County Sheriff’s Deputy noted two subjects who were dressed in all dark clothing and who appeared to be startled by his presence. When the deputy contacted the two subjects, he was alerted to the presence of a knife. While searching for that weapon, the deputy found the first subject was in possession of a third person’s driver’s license, a pair of expensive sunglasses, three cellular phones and a flashlight. The second subject was also found in possession of a third party’s driver’s license, a wallet with an ATM card,a set of keys, a pair of expensive sunglasses and a flashlight. With the assistance of the Napa Police Department, it was determined that the majority of the property was taken from unlocked cars in south Napa. The keys were found to have been taken from a vehicle that had been reported stolen previously. Both subjects, who are juveniles, were booked at the Napa County Juvenile Hall. This was a great example of proactive policing on the part of the Sheriff’s Deputy and the collaborative relationship that exists between all first responders in Napa County. #lockitorloseit #commitmenttocommunity #weworktogether
