Park City police blotter: Suspected fraud reported
The Park City Police Department on Thursday, May 24 at 1:02 p.m. responded to a report of a suspected fraud.
The case was logged on Samuel Colt Court. The police were told a company told the person who contacted the authorities it wants to give her a car and deposit money into her account.
