JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Jonesboro police issue a warning for businesses concerning calls from someone trying to get money on behalf of the department.

According to Sgt. Doug Formon, area businesses reported the calls to police Friday.

The caller from an "unknown company", tries to solicit money from the business to advertise on a magnet for E-911 dispatch and the Jonesboro Police Department, Formon said.

However, Jonesboro Police Chief Michael Yates says he has not given permission to any company to make these calls on behalf of the department.

If you receive such a call, please contact Jonesboro police at (870) 935-5562.
