We have received numerous complaints recently about phone scams. Many of these calls come from unknown numbers and are often recorded messages. Some calls may claim that you have won a prize or need to claim some type of reward. Here are some tips when receiving calls of this nature. 1. Never give out any personal information. Even if they have your name, do not confirm any information or answer any of their questions. 2. Many scams tell you that the IRS or the Police will arrest you, they may also say you are summoned to court and the Sheriff will arrest you. This is false, WE DO NOT MAKE COURTESY CALLS prior to arresting people! 3. Report any scams involving the IRS to the United States treasury at www.treasury.gov/titga/ or call 800-366-4484. 4. Place your phone number on the National Do Not Call Registry at www.donotcall.gov 5. Alert family members and friends about these scam calls especially if they might be susceptible to these scams. While we cannot prevent these calls from happening, we hope these tips will help keep your information and that of your loved ones safe. Please share this post and help spread the word throughout our community

All normal routes of travel are now open. Please use caution as there may still be small amounts of debris on the roadways. Power has also been restored to most of the county.

On June 20, 2018 strong winds hit areas of Chowan County causing power outages for many in the town of Edenton and also for folks on the south end of our county. If you are without power please DO NOT call our 911 dispatch center. Instead you may call Edenton Utilities at 252-482-4414. If you are traveling towards Cape Colony or other neighborhood in that area you will have to go North on 17 and then take Haughton Road to the intersection with Poplar Neck Road. An update will be posted when the roadways are back open and normal routes of travel can be used.

The names of the suspects can not be released at this time but it is a father and son team that are from the Washington County area.
