Rio Rancho Police Department is warning that individuals have calling residents pretending to be RRPD officers.

The scammers are telling people they have new warrants and requesting money over the phone to resolve them.

“RRPD will never request money for warrants. If you receive a similar call, please hang up and file an online police report or contact 505-891-7226 to have an officer respond. Lastly, if you do have an active warrant, you can contact the issuing court and learn how to get that resolved,” RRPD said.
