Sheriff Scott Steward is warning residents to be aware that a fraudulent caller representing himself as a deputy from the Park County Sheriff’s Office is calling residents stating that they have missed an assigned jury duty and that they must report to the sheriff’s office to sign an affidavit for “Judge Cranfill.” The caller may also demand that the victim send money in the form of gift cards to avoid arrest. In one instance, the caller identified himself as “Deputy Rob Cooke.” Upon call back to the suspect’s caller ID number, a male does answer “sheriff’s office.”

“The Park County Sheriff’s Office does employ a Deputy Rob Cooke but in no way do we get involved with jury duty summons,” said Sheriff Steward. “If a resident fails to respond to or ignores a just duty summons, the court will issue a bench warrant for the resident’s arrest. The court does not make advanced notification prior to issuing the bench warrant and for certain, the court does not ask for payments in advance to avoid arrest.”

If you receive a call regarding jury duty that you feel may be a scam, attempt to get as much information as possible from the caller including the caller ID number and report it to the sheriff’s dispatch at 307-527-8700. If you have any questions about jury duty in general including whether or not you have missed an assignment, contact the court (District Court at 307-527-8690 or Circuit Court at 307-527-8590) and verify the information. Above all, do not send any money or give the caller any personal information. Simply tell them that you will deal directly with the court.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of long-time Park County Sheriff’s Office employee Annette Rudio. Annette was 57 years old. She died this past Sunday, June 18th of apparent natural causes.

Annette served for over 20 years as the sheriff’s administrative assistant. She was hired initially as a dispatcher in November of 1992 and was elevated to administrative assistant in 1996. She served faithfully under Sheriffs Bill Brewer, David Doyle and Scott Steward right up to the time of her death.

“Annette was a dedicated employee who was very proud of her ability to serve the citizens of Park County,” commented Sheriff Steward. “She was well-known to many residents and was an excellent ambassador for the sheriff’s office. She was my right hand and my friend and I will miss her.”

Services for Ms. Rudio have not yet been determined.
