KATY (Covering Katy News) - The Harris County Precinct 5 Constable's Office is warning people about a scam that falsely appears to be from Constable Ted Heap's office.

"A fraudulent notice has resurfaced in recent days that is made to look like it is from our Constable's office. It warns people about free key rings that are equipped with tracking devices," said a post on the Precinct 5 Constable's Facebook page. 

This is not a legitimate notice according to Heap.

"It is an urban myth. It did not originate from our office or any Harris County office," Heap said.

Precinct 5 investigators are attempting to track down the source of the scam.
