The Nevada Highway Patrol is warning area residents to beware of a phone scam in which a male caller identifies himself as the state police.

A spokesman said the imposter instructed the person called they needed to go to a Walgreens pharmacy and get funds to pay for a fine involving a warrant.

When questioned, the imposter hung up.

NHP officials say they never call or text people in an attempt to clear up a warrant or fine. All warrants are handled by the court system in each county.

Anyone receiving one of those calls or text messages is urged to contact local police.
