Scam

Local residents are asked to be aware of a scam hitting the area.

The Antelope County Sheriff's Department, along with the Neligh Police Department, are warning that area residents have received calls stating that a family member has been kidnapped and that $2,000-$3,000 needs to be dropped off to ensure the safety of their family members. The number with call is 52(81)2514-4214.

Residents are asked to ignore the calls because they are scams. The calls are not automated and are instead by live people. Often times, others can be heard in the background of the calls.

Law enforcement asked that if anyone has concerns, contact the Neligh Police Department or the Antelope County Sheriff's Department.
