COMMONWEALTH OF KENTUCKY OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ________________________________________ Beshear: Text Message Scammers Posing as Law Enforcement Officials FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 2, 2018) – In a new scam alert issued by Attorney General Andy Beshear, Kentuckians are being warned of scammers posing as law enforcement officials demanding payment and threatening arrest via text messages. Kentuckians in Greenup, Jefferson and Montgomery counties have recently reported losing more than $110,000 after they thought they were sending payment to an official law enforcement agency. Beshear said Kentuckians are now reporting a number of text messages from con artists identifying themselves as prosecutors or police officers who claim a lawsuit and arrest warrant have been issued and unless Kentuckians call within 30 minutes to make a payment, they will go to jail for six months. Beshear said the best way to avoid the scam is to know that no law enforcement office would ever send a text message to demand payment or threaten arrest. “We are constantly working with our many partners to track down and hold accountable anyone who wrongly uses the name of a law enforcement agency to threaten or hurt Kentucky families,” Beshear said. Beshear said his office launched a direct text messaging and email service, Scam Alerts in 2016. Scam Alerts allows the office to send messages to Kentuckians when new and trending scams are reported in Kentucky. To sign up to receive Scam Alerts, text the words KYOAG Scam to GOV311 (468311), or enroll online at ag.ky.gov/scams. Beshear issued a Scam Alert in October 2017, to warn Kentuckians of a lottery scam that used the name of the Office of the Attorney General to try and scare Kentuckians into sending money over wire transfer. Beshear has also warned Kentuckians of other law enforcement imposter scams, including the jury duty scam and sheriff’s deputy scams. To report a scam to the Office of the Attorney General, dial 888-432-9257 or file a consumer complaint online.

Great work by the Madisonville-Hopkins County Vice/Narcotics unit, deputies, officers, KSP and our K-9 Nala. Nortonville and Mortons Gap.

We have been contacted about a Facebook post about a threat at West Hopkins School. Deputy John Komar, one of our School Rescource Officers, has investigated the complaint, identified the student involved and taken the appropiate action to ensure the safety of our students before school was dismissed this afternoon. If you receive information about a threat to one of our schools please contact us immediately. Together we can work to protect the children, teachers and staff of all Hopkins County schools.

Hopkins County- 2-24-18 AM KY 502 is CLOSED between the 1 and 5mm—Signs posted KY 1033 has High Water signs posted at the 1 to 2mm KY 3059 has High Water signs posted at the 2 to 4mm All others are fully OPEN at this time

We have had quite a bit of rain and more is on the way. Low lying areas are still flooded and water may cover some of our roads. These pictures were taken in the Nortonville and White Plains area within the last hour. HWY 502 and low areas on the north end of the county are facing similar conditions. Most of the roads are ok now, but that could change quickly as the rain continues. If you come across water over the road, it’s better to find an alternate route than to drive through. Stay safe.
