Chadron Police Department investigating robbery in Chadron

On May 1, 2012 at approximately 1:52 am, two males (one possibly Native American) entered Common Cents gas station (Chadron) wearing blankets on their heads trying to conceal their identity. One male went directly to the coolers while the other male stood near the front counter telling the store clerk “do not do anything,” while pointing something under the blanket at the clerk. The two males then took two 30 packs of beer and left in an older model light blue Ford pickup. 

            Chadron Police observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed on North Main Street before the robbery was reported through the communications center. As Sergeant Loutzenhiser was attempting to catch up to the speeding vehicle, communications broadcasted information that a robbery had just occurred at Common Cents and provided the description that matched the vehicle officer’s where pursuing North on Main Street.  Officers continued to follow the vehicle as it fled out-of-town and located it wrecked at the intersection of McHenry Road and Slim Buttes Road, approximately six miles Northeast of Chadron. The vehicle was unoccupied and still running when officers arrived on scene.

            With the assistance of the Dawes County Sheriffs Office, Nebraska State Patrol and the Pine Ridge Police Department, a two hour long search was conducted for the suspects.  The suspects were not located. The Chadron Police Department is continuing its investigation into this incident and encourages anyone with information regarding this crime to contact the Chadron Police Department at 308-432-0510 or may remain anonymous by calling the Dawes County Crime Stoppers at 308-432-0519 and up to a $1000.00 reward maybe paid for information leading to the arrest and indictment of those responsible for this crime.

“Family Member Money Scam”

The Chadron Police Department has received a few calls regarding a local phone scam in our area.  People have been receiving phone calls from people claiming to be relatives of the victim.  The caller then tells the victim their family member is in trouble and needs the victim to wire money immediately via a service such as Western Union. The caller also tells the victim not to take anyone with them to wire the money or tell anyone about the money transfer.  It appears we have had at least two calls in our area where the caller advised he was the grandson of the victim and asked the victim to send them money immediately.

The Chadron Police Department has received these types of scam reports in the past and often times the caller will place a fake phone call claiming to be a police officer, a sergeant, or an investigator in order to convince you of the scam.  The amount of money typically requested is between $2000.00-$6000.00.

The Chadron Police Department is asking the public to be very cautious when they receive odd phone calls and to never volunteer information to someone over the phone and also take time to verify the request through another family member or your local law enforcement agency.  We also ask you if you have friends or relatives, who may be easily victimized by a scam like this, please speak with them and advise them there are individuals out there that wish to take advantage of their good nature.  Please report any and all suspicious phone calls to the Chadron Police Department by calling 308-432-0510.Phone scam pic 031513

“RELAY FOR LIFE” is Legit, but user may not be !!!

SCAMMERS have no shame and don't care who they hurt. With that in mind, a new twist has been added to their schemes..... RELAY FOR LIFE is a communications system designed to allow people who can not speak or hear to contact others by phone for personal and business reasons. It is done through a third party interpreter. THE BAD GUYS are using this system so there is no direct contact between them and their victims and to add some sympathetic legitimacy to their scam. You receive a call from Relay For Life and the scammer will attempt any one of a dozen scams.  So Please Be Aware---- RELAY FOR LIFE is a legitimate organization, the bad guys are just abusing it. If you feel that you have been scammed through Relay for Life, please contact them and let them know.... Remember - Be Smart-Be Careful-Be Safe.... Sheriff Karl Dailey

It’s Spring and the Scammers are Blooming !!

Well folks, It's Spring time and the "Nasty Eggs" are hatching !!   The scammers don't care who you are or what your monetary status is. They will stick you and suck you dry, if you let them. They have no shame or conscience and will use any ploy to separate you from your money and good name.   One of the schemes I hear about is  ---- you get a phone call from a person claiming to be from some Law Enforcement Organization. They say they are collecting funds for kids, ballistic vests, surviving spouses and kids or any one of a hundred other reasons. You tell them that you would like their information so that local LE can check on them or you ask them to mail you their information. They will try to discourage you from doing these things and if you press them, they will get angry at you and / or just hang up.    Remember....  When In Doubt, Check It Out !!!!    Sheriff Karl Dailey
