The Thomasville Police Department is warning people about a new scam.

It involves service tags on fire extinguishers.

Police are asking business owners and employees in the Thomasville area to check their fire extinguisher tags immediately. 

Thomasville Police Department have released this statement " It should be noted- this is a legitimate business in Florida, however, they are not licensed in Georgia. It appears someone has gotten hold of some of their tags and are using them here for this illegitimate purpose."

If you think you have been scammed, you are urged to contact Tim Connell at the Thomasville Fire Department as soon as possible. His number is (229) 227-4099.
