Update: Arrest Made In Stolen Vehicle

In June we told you about a White Ford Econoline E250 van stolen from Evenson Laundry on 14th Avenue. Officers recovered the vehicle in Michigan a few days ago. Yesterday Officers arrested a 25 year old Sturgeon Bay man for the theft. The Sturgeon Bay man is currently incarcerated in the Muskegon County jail in Michigan on multiple probation warrants from Wisconsin and Michigan.

IRS Phone Scam

During the past few weeks Officers have received calls from citizens in the community who have been receiving phone calls from the IRS. During some of the calls the scammers claim to be from the IRS and attempt to intimidate or threaten citizens that if they don't pay immediately they will send the police to your house. Rest assured when you hang up on these individuals we will not be coming to your house.

Additionally another method used by the scammers are a computerized voicemail that claims to be the IRS and asks you to contact them. This is also a scam.

Feel free to hang up on these individuals and never give out sensitive information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, or banking information over the phone unless you are positive you know who you are talking to is legitimate.

Lastly if the IRS does want to get a hold of you they will do it via the United States Postal Service.
