The Genesee County Sheriff’s Office released the following details regarding complaints of a phone scam:

The caller identifies himself as Mike Harris, a Deputy with the Genesee County Sheriff’s Department.  The caller advises the person that he or she needs to pay a $3,000 bond as soon as possible or deputies will show up to arrest the victim on the outstanding warrant.

The caller instructs the victim to go to the nearest Kroger Store and purchase 3 blue and orange pre-paid debit cards, later learned to be 1-2-3 Rewards Pre-Paid Debit Cards issued by Kroger.  The caller then instructs the victim to load $1,000 on each card and then read the recharge number and security number off the back of each debit card.

There have been several complaints in the last 2 days and each complaint has given the same M.O. as described above.  All but one of the complainants refused to pay.  The complainant who did pay was kept on the phone for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes until the complainant gave the suspect the pre-paid debit card information. 

The Genesee County Sheriff’s Department is asking anyone who may receive a similar call to notify them immediately by calling 810-686-8622.

FREE Latex Paint Recycling for Genesee County Residents

Residents of Genesee County can now bring their left-over, unused, and unwanted latex paint to the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity Restore in the City of Flint to be recycled at NO CHARGE! Regular business hours are Tuesday through Saturday 9a.m. – 5p.m.

The paint collected at the Restore is transported to a processing facility in Battle Creek, operated by ePaint LLC, where the paint is then made into a new paint product called “Everybody’s Paint” or “ePaint” for short. This new paint product is then returned to the Restore in the City of Flint where residents can purchase new paint for under $15 per gallon! Paint colors even have their own Michigan-made touch such as “Keep Lake Michigan Blue”, “Mackinaw Green” and “Petoskey Stone”.

This program has been organized by the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission with support from the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity and Keep Genesee County Beautiful.
