SCAM ALERT: The Drug Enforcement Administration is warning the public about criminals posing as DEA Special Agents or other law enforcement personnel as part of an international extortion scheme. The criminals call the victims (who in most cases previously purchased drugs over the internet or by telephone) and identify themselves as DEA agents or law enforcement officials from other agencies. The impersonators inform their victims that purchasing drugs over the internet or by telephone is illegal, and that enforcement action will be taken against them unless they pay a fine. In most cases, the impersonators instruct their victims to pay the "fine" via wire transfer to a designated location, usually overseas. If victims refuse to send money, the impersonators often threaten to arrest them or search their property. Some victims who purchased their drugs using a credit card also reported fraudulent use of their credit cards. Impersonating a federal agent is a violation of federal law. The public should be aware that no DEA agent will ever contact members of the public by telephone to demand money or any other form of payment. The DEA reminds the public to use caution when purchasing controlled substance pharmaceuticals by telephone or through the Internet. It is illegal to purchase controlled substance pharmaceuticals online or by telephone unless very stringent requirements are met. And, all pharmacies that dispense controlled substance pharmaceuticals by means of the internet must be registered with DEA. By ordering any pharmaceutical medications online or by telephone from unknown entities, members of the public risk receiving unsafe, counterfeit, and/or ineffective drugs from criminals who operate outside the law. In addition, personal and financial information could be compromised. Online reporting will greatly assist DEA in investigating and stopping this criminal activity. Anyone receiving a telephone call from a person purporting to be a DEA special agent or other law enforcement official seeking money should refuse the demand and report the threat using the online form below. Please include all fields, including, most importantly, a call back number so that a DEA investigator can contact you for additional information.

With drivers education approaching here are a few reminders for various permits to include Farm Permits and Learners Permits. Remember to drive safe and teach new drivers to buckle up. Have a great summer!

UPDATE: The dog’s owner has claimed it! Thanks! Is this your lost dog? It’s currently at Skiles!

In the event the storm arrives as forecasted the Atwood Police Department would like to encourage all citizens to stay out of the weather and not drive. Crews will be working and possibilities of road closures may occur. When the barricades are up do not drive around them because they are up for the public’s safety. While up passage past the barricades is not permitted. If an emergency vehicle is watching the barricades the road is still closed and passage is not permitted. Prepare early and have an alternative plan in advance in case such events take place. Be mindful, Road Crews often can not see motorists while working. When motorists are stuck on the roadways delays are presented for everyone involved. Safety for all is paramount and everyone’s voluntary compliance is needed. Be safe and if possible enjoy an evening at home. Tomorrow will be a better day.

EDIT: Dog has been claimed! This young Pitbull male was running at large in the 400 block of S. First Street. He can be redeemed at Bearley Veterinary Service.

The Atwood Police Department would like to thank everyone in the community who expressed their concerns this morning. Always remember when something doesn’t look right trust your initial thoughts and contact the Police for assistance if needed.
