The Brown County Sheriff’s Office in New Ulm has received multiple reports claiming Chief Deputy Jeremy Reed was attempting to contact members of the community, and leaving a message to call him back.

The caller’s voice had a southern accent, and the number that was reported is not associated with Chief Deputy Jeremy Reed or the Brown County Sheriff’s Office. This is a scam.
