Sheriff issues scam alert for Curry County

A scam hit Curry County Thursday — the second in a week — involving a male caller identifying himself as an officer with the Sheriff’s Department and telling the victims they owe the office large sums of money.

The caller has told people that, if they do not pay the money, a bench warrant will be issued for their arrest. The suspect has also asked victims to meet them to exchange the money.


Northbound 101 opens

One lane of northbound traffic on Highway 101 will open at 9 p.m. tonight (Feb. 11) as work continues on repairs to the landslide and sinkhole between Hearing Health Care and the Fireside Diner in Harbor.

The southbound access will remain as it has been Feb. 3 when state transportation agency officials closed the southbound lanes in front of an encroaching sinkhole. Traffic has been detoured from Highway 101 to Lower Harbor Road since the beginning of February.

Two signs will be placed at Benham Lane to alert drivers to the change.
