WENATCHEE — Chelan County officials are warning against a scam targeting residents selected for jury duty.

Five or six residents complained Monday of receiving a call from someone claiming to be with Chelan County and telling them there was a warrant for their arrest because they’d missed jury duty, said county Clerk Kim Morrison.

The residents were told to pay a $2,000 fine, Morrison said.

Morrison said this is a scam and the county will never call anyone selected for jury duty to tell them there’s a warrant for their arrest.

Residents are advised to avoid releasing personal information or making payments of any kind.

For more information call the county at 667-6383.
