BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- The Brunswick Police Department is warning about calls being received in southern Georgia warning about residents being held hostage.

Several citizens have come forward claiming that the calls state a close relative is being held hostage – threats that are fabricated.

Police report that the calls are originating from the Miami area and that the suspects are using prepaid cellphones.

Law enforcement advises that anyone who receives a similar call attempt to make contact with the relative in question and not disclose any personal or financial information to the caller.
