Minnesota judicial officials are warning of a phone scam that involves jury duty.
    
Residents in Olmsted, Rice, Dakota and Ramsey counties have reported getting phone messages saying they had failed to return a jury summons. The message asks for a return call. When the call is returned, someone named Angel answers the phone and asks probing questions.
    
The Star Tribune says prospective jurors in Scott County have reported getting calls from someone who says that he's Major Paul Stevens and that there's a warrant out for their arrest.
