Message from Eau Claire County Sheriff's Department:

The Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Office has received three calls today from citizens who have been contacted by a person claiming to be a representative of the Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Office. This person, who is identifying himself as “Officer Malone, Badge #777, is telling citizens that they have outstanding warrants and is directing them to go to Walmart to post bond on their warrants.

The Eau Claire County Sheriff’s Office does not have an employee named Malone and would never direct anyone to a retail location to post bond on a warrant.
