Police: Beware of fake donation calls for NH chief
MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) -- Some New Hampshire police departments are warning residents to beware of callers asking for donations to help the family of a police chief who was killed last week.
The Merrimack Police Department put out an advisory Tuesday saying an organization is soliciting donations for the family of Greenland Chief Michael Maloney, who was fatally shot last Thursday. The Nashua Police Department put out a similar advisory Wednesday.
The callers say they're calling on behalf of the New Hampshire Chiefs of Police when there is no authorized solicitation of donations from any law enforcement organization for Maloney's family.
The police departments ask that people contact them if they get such a call.
