BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Gallatin County locals are reportedly getting calls from someone pretending to be with Search and Rescue, and asking for donations.

The Sheriff's Office says Search and Rescue never solicits money. It is run with tax money and donations made directly to the Sheriff's Office.

If you receive a call from someone raising money for Search and Rescue, do not give them any donations, and call the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office.
