Police Release New Details on Scam in Ohio County


Wheeling Police have released new information on the jury duty scam targeting people in Ohio County.

Police say a man claiming to be Deputy Chambers is calling people across the county, wanting them to pay a fine. The man then tells people that if they don’t pay that Judge James Mazzone will issue a warrant for their arrest for not showing up for jury duty.

Police say this is a scam and you will never be asked to pay money for failing to appear.
