    ***Current Seymour Road Conditions 2/18 8:30 AM***  Main roads are slushy and mostly clear with spots of coverage. Traction is limited in specific areas and somewhat unpredictable.   Secondary and tertiary streets are mostly covered and in much worse condition with snowpack, slush, and ice spotting. Please use extreme caution on side streets as they are not consistent and several intersections are slick.   Please use care if you are out on the roads today and drive below the posted limits with due regard. Lane changing could be risky and stopping distances will be increased. Please give yourself extra room to stop and be cautious of intersections.  Additional snowfall is expected today which may change conditions.

    Can we get East 15th street cleaned off? I know it isn’t as important as other roads in town but it’s horrible to get out of. I’ve gotten almost stuck multiple times and it hasn’t been cleaned off from the 1st round of snow.

    Pro tip: if someone tells you "don't call the police", CALL THE POLICE ASAP ☎️  Today, SPD received a call for a welfare check on an elderly female. The caller stated that someone had called the female and told them not to alert police but to go to Walmart and contact them when she was there.   Officer Helmsing located the female in her vehicle at Walmart and observed her to be in possession of two gift cards which she was using to read card information to an unknown person on her cell phone. At this time, Officer Helmsing instructed the female to stop communicating with the person on the line.   Officer Helmsing then escorted the female to the service desk where Walmart associates were fortunately able to fully refund a total of $1,000 off of the compromised cards before they were used.  In speaking with the female, the caller had reached out to her anonymously and built a very believable rapport with her over several days. The number had contacted her no less than eight times with the messages progressively getting more aggressive and threatening. The caller stated various lies ranging from being an IRS agent to needing to collect payment for a new Toyota Corolla someone had fraudulently purchased with her information. The caller was able to produce believable personal information about the female. The number provided was a spoofed number tracing ultimately to an overseas location.  1. DO NOT SPEAK to anonymous callers. If they have business with you, request that they reach you through alternate means. If it sounds sketchy, hang up immediately. 2. These scam artists prey on kind hearted people and will go to any length necessary to sell their lies. Please let your family members know that this is a very real, and very common scam tactic. 3. DO NOT pay for things with gift cards EVER. This is a flashing neon warning for a scam in progress. 4. If someone tells you not to speak with the authorities... DEFINITELY speak with authorities.

    Things like this is why I answer the phone with unknown numbers in this manner: “thank you for calling the southern Indiana district office of the FBI how may I direct your call” They always hang up since I started doing that it’s very rare that I get those kind of calls anymore

    I got a call last week from the "IRS" saying that my SSN was compromised, and that I needed to talk to an agent and set up payment to "fix" the issue. Failure to do so would result in fines or jail time. I hung up on them, wrote down the number, and called SPD and gave them the number. Seymour number.

    I encourage everyone to watch the show Trafficked with Mariana van Zeller on the National Geographic channel. She does an episode on scams. It’s seriously eye opening. This is exactly the kind of thing she uncovered.

    Heather Nowling DeShong Absolutely... Money stolen this way is consistently used to further other criminal acts including human trafficking, the drug trade, and terrorism.

    That’s the same thing that I always told my daughter, if someone tells you not to tell your parents, make sure you tell your parents.

    That’s amazing you guys caught it in time! I have been getting scammer calls from the area they will use someone’s phone number as a mask number somehow. When I call back it’s some random person from town and had never called me. Idk how they do it but they’re doing it!

    Mariah Ann Snyder They use phone apps to spoof numbers. Definitely can't trust caller ID anymore.

    BE careful swiping your cards at non-trusted locations. . UNFORTUNATELY Not everyone cares if you have bills or a family to provide for.

    Ashley Grizzle Truth!!
    1 week ago Ashley Newcomb
    Ashley Grizzle this is so true! I got almost $2k swiped out of my bank account before the bank caught on and got it stopped. They somehow pulled off a boat load of small withdrawals in a matter of minutes! It took a few months of disputing charges, but the bank really worked with me on getting almost all of it back. I check before I swipe my card everywhere now. I pay with cash way more often now too lol.

    Ashley Newcomb Same girl, we got hit at a Marathon gas station in greenwood.. I now only get our gas at JayC now 🤣... it was about $2k as well.

    ***Current Seymour Road Conditions: 9:00 AM 2/16***  All roads in Seymour are again snow covered. Lanes are difficult to see and the roadway is covered with significant snowpack and are slick.  Road crews are working diligently to clear the roads and should make good headway by this evening with the break in the snow. We are currently under a red travel advisory, which limits travel to emergency vehicles only. If you don't absolutely have to be out, please stay at home.  When you are driving in these conditions you are putting others at risk including the first responders and equipment operators who are out responding to traffic accidents. If it can wait until tomorrow, get to it at that time.
