The Brattleboro PD received a complaint of a caller stating they were with the Brattleboro "Village" Police Department and there was a warrant out for the persons arrest. The caller ID number received was one of the actual lines used by the Brattleboro Police Department (257-7946). The caller provided a fictitious case number to the complainant. The caller directed the complainant to contact a law firm at a number provided by the caller. This law firm would then assist them with clearing the warrant, most likely by making a monetary arrangement with the fictitious law firm.
