  • Throughout the day a few Newtown Township residents reported suspicious phone calls that they were receiving. In these phone calls, the callers portrayed themselves as the complainants’ grandsons and were requesting large amounts of money. The complainants were able to ascertain that it was not their grandsons calling, ended the calls, and immediately notified the police. Police confirmed that these phone calls are scams and advise residents to be aware of such scams, block unwanted callers, and contact the police with any questions.
