Press Release January 24, 2020

        **********WARNING PHONE SCAM ALERT**********

Today an elderly gentleman come into a local bank to withdraw nearly his entire bank account except for the minimum balance requirements. When bank personnel questioned him at first as to why he needed to withdraw a large amount of money he initially said it wasn’t our business, which of course it is the banks business when it’s a large amount of money. When bank personnel told him they just wanted to make sure he wasn’t involved with some type of scam he opened up and said he needed to pay off the social security administration. He said he got a phone call from someone claiming to be with the social security administration and they gave him their name and badge number. The caller told him that they found his social security number tied to a fraudulent $10 million dollar loan out of El Paso Texas. When he told them that he wasn’t involved, they said they were going to have the Conejos County Undersheriff Chris Crown contact him and tell him what he needed to do to get a new social security number and what he’d need to do to avoid being arrested. He then got a phone call from someone posing as Undersheriff Chris Crown, stating that in order for him to avoid being arrested today he needed to protect his money by purchasing a “Government Voucher” and as soon as he purchased it the undersheriff would deliver him a new social security number. Bank personnel advised him that didn’t make sense and that they would contact Undersheriff Chris Crown directly. Bank personnel immediately contacted Conejos County Undersheriff Chris Crown and quickly learned that this was an obvious phone scam.  The victim of this phone scam terminated his withdrawal request and did not lose any money.

Conejos County Sheriff Garth Crowther wants to remind everyone that the Sheriff’s Office will never call and tell you that you have a warrant for your arrest. If you receive a call from someone telling you that you have a warrant for your arrest please do not try and pay the “Bond” over the phone or make a withdrawal from your bank account and/or send funds to an unknown location. Conejos County Sheriff’s Office and staff members will never deliver a new social security number to anyone and will never ask anyone to purchase a “Government Voucher”.

Sheriff Crowther also wants to remind all citizens, never release any personal information to anyone over the phone such as your name, date of birth, banking information, social security number or any information that would make it easy for scammers to steal your identity and/or funds.  

If you do receive a scam call please write down the number which called you along with the date and time and report it immediately to your local Law Enforcement Agency.

This case remains under investigation.

Press Release - G18 Fire Update

Written by

PRESS RELEASE

October 28, 2019

 G-18 Fire

For immediate release

Approximately 4:00 PM on October 27, 2019, South Conejos Fire Protection District was dispatched to a grass fire near County Road G and County Road 17.  At the engine crew’s time of arrival, the fire had begun to spread North and East.  At the time of this release there is one structure that was burned as well as three separate out buildings.  Large numbers of cattle were displaced.  Numerous fences, pasture and haystacks were burned. The fire was approximately 2,000 plus acres in size but the final number of acres is yet to be determined.  Sheriff Garth Crowther reported there were minor injuries to one volunteer Fireman and no other reports of injuries. 

All Conejos County Fire Departments, Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control, and numerous San Luis Valley Fire Departments were actively fighting the fire. Sheriff Crowther called out for mutual aid from neighboring law enforcement agencies, including Colorado State Patrol who quickly responded.  San Luis Valley Emergency Managers also responded.  At this time the fire is contained but we are expecting high winds and the fire area will continue to be monitored by fire agencies.

 All roads in the fire area are now open. Conejos County Sheriff’s Deputies are currently out assessing further damage along with Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control who are still on scene. 

Sheriff’s investigators were on scene to determine the cause and origin of the fire.  ATF investigators were called to assist with the investigation.  The cause is still under investigation at this time.
