Police warn against possible keyring scam

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Police are warning about a possible scam that could make it's way to Lubbock.

LPD received an alert from the Fort Worth area that criminals are giving away free keyrings with tracking chips at gas stations and parking lots. They say the keyring will allow criminals to track and follow the person carrying it.
