CAÑON CITY, Colo. — The Cañon City Police Department (CCPD) is warning the public about a scam involving a claim of kidnapping.

CCPD posted about the scam on Facebook, and said they initially received a call regarding a kidnapping on June 8. That call was determined to be a scam. Again on June 13, CCPD received two more calls from residents stating that they had been told their child was kidnapped and they needed to go to Wal-Mart.

If you receive a call regarding your child being kidnapped, immediately call 911, do not provide the caller with any money or any personal information.
