A Crimestoppers tip resulted in the apprehension of Kaysha Devlin, 24, who was wanted on five warrants out of Delta, Adams and Gunnison counties. She was arrested at a residence in the City of Delta.
A 70-year-old Eckert woman was the victim of a scam targeting recently widowed individuals. The caller claims to owe money to the deceased spouse. To obtain the money, the surviving spouse is asked to mail a sum of money to the caller. In this case, the victim sent two checks totaling $2,300 to the Philippines and provided information about her banking account. The bank account has been closed, but Delta County Sheriff Fred McKee says there is little chance the money can be recovered.
