FROM THE CUSHING POLICE DEPARTMENT:
On September 14, 2017 at approx. 3:30 p.m., the Cushing Police Department received a call, regarding a phone scam. During the following investigation, the citizen claimed that she had received a phone call from a male subject, who claimed to be an officer with the Cushing Police Department.
The male subject claimed to be collecting donations for deceased and injured officer’s families. After hearing this, the citizen did the correct thing, by refusing to provide any further information and contact the police department.
“I want our citizens to know that the Cushing Police Department and/or its members are not soliciting any donations”, Chief Folden said. At this time, we do not know what number the caller used, but would urge anyone that receives a similar phone call to immediately contact our department.
