Prank causing parish trouble
This week, someone decided to do some prank calling.
Maj. Stephen Williams, spokesman for the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office, said that a prank call/text message began circulating this week.
Williams said the victim initially receives a text message asking them to call a phone number. When that phone number is called, the caller hears a voice message indicating that the person has missed jury duty and will be subject to a $500 or 30 days in jail.
Williams said if residents listen to the end, it is clear that it is a hoax.
