Loretto Tennessee Police warn residents about recent scam.


Loretto Police Department released the following information:


Someone is calling around pretending to be our Chief, Bobby Joe Killen. They are asking personal questions and in some cases stating the person needs to come to City Hall for an emergency. The number being used at this time is 931-297-8353.

Do not entertain these calls or give out personal information over the phone. We are working to determine the source of these calls and will prosecute once the person is identified. In the meantime time if you are contacted please report the number as spam and block it.

(We can assure you this is a scam as Chief has investigators to do his phone calls and this is peak Bonanza/Gunsmoke time.)"
