Police look for shoplifters; warn of scam


Police are investigating a scam and several thefts this week.

Carlisle police say be careful if someone contacts you about a purchase such as a virus software and then asks you to download additional programs. During that process, the scammers could access your computer and get personal information like your bank account.
