Highland County authorities are warning locals of a new telephone scam in which the caller identifies himself as a DEA special agent from Washington D.C. Authorities say the scammer accuses the victim of buying drugs from out the country, says the victim is being indicted, and claims an arrest warrant will be issued unless money is immediately paid.

Officials with the Highland County Sheriff's Office say the incident is being investigated, and you should not send money if you get a similar call. Instead, they say you could report this by calling 877-792-2873.
