***SCAM ALERT*** Tax time is upon us, and HPD has received several calls from citizens about phone scams. In these scams, the caller poses as an IRS representative and claim you owe the IRS money. Citizens are told they must pay the balance promptly using a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer. If the citizen doesn't pay, the scammers will claim you will be subject to punishment, including arrest, deportation or suspension of you driver’s license. Scammers may also pose as a law enforcement official, or they may tell citizens they've won a large sum of money. Don’t fall for the tricks! Keep your personal information safe by remaining alert. And, when in doubt, assume it's a scam. Don't engage or respond with scammers. Here's what to do if you receive a suspicious phone call or message: 1. If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS, and you do not owe tax, or if you are immediately aware that it's a scam, don't engage with the scammer and do not give out any information. Just hang up. 2. If you receive a telephone message from someone claiming to be from the IRS, and you do not owe tax, or if you are immediately aware that it's a scam, don't call them back. 3. If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be with the IRS, and you owe tax or think you may owe tax, do not give out any information. Call the IRS back at 1-800-829-1040 to find out more information. 4. You can also contact Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) to report scam calls by calling 1-800-366-4484 or by using the “IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting” form on their website. You may also want to report the scam to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) by using the “FTC Complaint Assistant” to report persons pretending to be from the government; please add “IRS Telephone Scam” in the notes.

If you have information related to this case, please call the Hillview Police Department at (502) 955-6808 or Bullitt County Dispatch at (502) 955-7480.

***UPDATE*** Ronald “Tony” Hagan is now in police custody! This morning just before 11:00am, an officer with the Louisville Metro Police Department noticed a suspicious vehicle on Walter Avenue in the 4th Division. A computer check of the vehicle’s license plate revealed the vehicle was stolen. As the officer approached the vehicle, the passenger exited the vehicle and ran from the officer. LMPD officers saturated the area, and they were able to locate and identify the passenger as Ronald “Tony” Hagan. Additional charges were filed on Mr. Hagan as a result of this morning’s incident. We would like to thank LMPD and the officers of the 4th Division for their great work this morning! Good Job!
This morning just before 9:00am, a concerned citizen called HPD to report suspicious activity. The citizen stated two males were loading items into a truck behind Domino’s located at 6434 N. Preston Highway. As an HPD Officer arrived on the scene and attempted to make contact with the individuals, the vehicle fled the scene at a high rate of speed and proceeded to travel southbound on Preston Highway toward Shepherdsville. Officers with the Shepherdsville Police Department spotted the suspect vehicle in Shepherdsville, attempted to pull the vehicle over but the driver refused to stop. The vehicle pursuit, involving multiple law enforcement agencies, traveled northbound on I-65, exited onto KY 841 and finally exiting onto Preston Highway. Due to the suspect’s reckless driving, and law enforcement's concern for public safety, Officers disengaged the pursuit on Preston Highway. Officers located the suspect vehicle, which was unoccupied, a short time later on Pebblestone Circle where it was discovered the vehicle was stolen. As officers continued to check the area for both suspects, the passenger was taken into custody near the intersection of Preston Highway & Commerce Crossings Drive. The driver of the vehicle was not located. This investigation is ongoing, but both suspects have been identified. The passenger was identified as Jason Ray Baxter (33) of Louisville, KY, and the driver has been identified as Ronald “Tony” Hagan (37) of Louisville, KY. Jason Baxter had several outstanding warrants at the time of his arrest, and he was charged with Theft By Unlawful Taking for today’s incident. Warrants were obtained today on Ronald “Tony” Hagan for Fleeing or Evading Police, Theft By Unlawful Taking, Receiving Stolen Property, Criminal Mischief, Operating on a Suspended License and Disregarding Traffic Control Device. If you know the whereabouts of Ronald “Tony” Hagan, please do not approach him and contact your local law enforcement agency. HPD would like to thank the Shepherdsville Police Department, Bullitt County Sheriff's Office, Pioneer Village Police, Kentucky State Police, and Louisville Metro Police Department for all of their assistance today!

Check out the story Morgan Lentes WLKY did this evening about the ornaments Karen Johnson created with police officers in mind. The ornaments are being sold at her print shop, The Copy Cats, on Bluelick Road in Hillview. http://www.wlky.com/article/christmas-ornament-sales-to-benefit-police-officers/14436617
We wanted to thank Karen Johnson for her donation to the Hillview Police Department. She owns The Copy Cats print shop at 3656 E Blue lick Rd. and made these awesome ornaments! She has decided to sell these to the public. We wanted to help her out because she is giving half of the proceeds to the Kentucky Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation. I’m not sure how much she is selling them for, but you can reach her at (502) 741-4244.
