Police Alert | Telephone Scam
The Radnor Township Police Department has issued a crime alert in regards to a phone scam. A resident reports being contacted by someone who stated they worked for the Delaware County Sheriff's Office and there were citations being issued for missing their court date. The resident was then advised to immediately purchase "Moneypak" cards to pay the fine. THIS IS A SCAM and all residents are advised to hang up immediately if they should receive such a call. Please call 9-1-1 if you have lost any money in a telephone or online scam or when reporting suspicious activities.
The Radnor Police respects citizens' privacy, civil rights, and civil liberties by emphasizing behavior, rather than appearance, in identifying suspicious activity. Factors such as race, ethnicity, and/or religious affiliation are not suspicious. The public should only report suspicious behavior and situations (e.g., an unattended backpack or package, or someone breaking into a vehicle or restricted area). Moreover, any physical descriptions are based on victim and witness statements provided to the Radnor Police at the time the incident was reported or developed through investigation.
