The Jasper Police Department in Jasper, Indiana, is warning individuals in the area of a new scam.

JPD says that the scam was reported recently and that it specifically targets local businesses.

Police say the scammers are calling local businesses and going by the company name of "Elite Sports." They say Elite Sports asks local businesses for "donations," and in return, offers to put a businesses logo on gear and banners at that will be placed in the Jasper High School gymnasium.

JPD says it has reached out to the high school and confirmed that no such fundraising offer exists.

If you live and Jasper and have been the victim of this scam or another like it, you can call JPD at 812-482-2255.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
