Elkhart Police Department

ELKHART — A scammer is calling residents and pretending to be from the Elkhart Police Department, authorities said Monday.

The department has received two reports of residents being contacted by phone by a person claiming to be Elkhart police. The scammer has told the individuals that there is a warrant or bond issued in their name and instructed them to obtain prepaid debit cards and bring them to the police station.
