When reading the blotters from the Powell Police Department and Park County Sheriff’s Office, certain types of reports recur each month. Complaints of barking dogs. Callers who see teens acting suspiciously. And, time and time again, reports of scams.
Sometimes the caller suspects a phone call or message may be a scam. Other times, it’s too late and a resident has unfortunately fallen for a fraudulent scheme.
