Social Worker Scam

The Itasca County Sheriff’s Office has received recent reports from Itasca County Social Services reporting that 2 families have had parties knock on their doors, claiming to be Social Workers. The parties then say that they are there to investigate reports of child abuse and the conditions of their homes.

These “Social Workers” are not from any Itasca County agency and no one knows who they are. If you have someone come to your home and you do not know them, please do not allow them to come into your home and call the Sheriff’s Office immediately by dialing 911.

Beginning today, the Mississippi River, Pokegama Lake, and Jay Gould will be under a no-wake zone. Itasca County Sheriff Vic Williams said that because of the high water levels, debris from land gets washed into the river and lake and can get pulled into the boat’s wake. Shore-land erosion also occurs more quickly with high moving water. The no-wake enforcement is supported by the DNR.
With the flood-stage rainfall we’ve had, Williams also asked motorists to be careful driving over roadways that standing water.
