April 8, 2014 - The Erie Police Department is warning citizens of a scam trying to solicit money.

Lt. Stan Green, public information officer, says the solicitors are calling asking for donations under the Cops and Rodders organization name.

Green says the Erie Police Department would never solicit funds over the phone.

The scam has nothing to do with the Erie Police Department or any other department in Erie County.

If you receive one of these phone calls soliciting funds, file a report with Erie Police at 870-1120.
