BARRE, Vt. - The Barre City Police Department is investigating several reports of an individual claiming to be "Chief Mike" or "Police Chief". The caller then asks for money. 

Phone calls are being reported from a (802)-622-xxxx number.  Police say this may be a spoofed phone number and that the call could be coming from anywhere. 

Anyone who receives this call should make note of the originating phone number and contact police. This call is a scam.
