Mercer County Sheriff's Department




New Open Burning Laws




BE ADVISED we have received reports of a scam in which Mercer County Sheriff’s Department is being used in a phone call in an attempt to obtain money from individuals. The caller has identified himself as “Lt. Brad Burns” and informs the recipient that they have failed to appear in court and that warrants have been issued for their arrest. The caller then directs the recipient to forward money to a certain location to have the warrant cancelled. There is no person named “Brad Burns” employed with Mercer County, and this is not the manner in which court appearances and arrest warrants are handled. Should you receive such a phone call, please contact Detective Mark Schmitt at (701) 745-3333.
