Tucson police issued a warning about a phone scam.

Police say callers impersonate friends or family members, insisting they are having car trouble and need money for repairs. At first they are told to go to a car shop, but are instead told to go into a neighborhood near Grant and Oracle, where they are told to leave money in the wheel well of a parked vehicle, a yard or grill.

Police say victims should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
