ARDMORE, OK -- U.S. Marshals are now investigating a phone scam with the caller posing as a Carter County deputy.

Sheriff Milton Anthony says deputies traced the phone signal back to a prison in Mitchell County, Georgia.
     
Deputies say the calls were being made by a cell phone inside the prison to acquire money to trade for goods at the facility's commissary.
    
The sheriff says the practice is not uncommon.

"It's not unheard of," said Sheriff Anthony. "They have plenty of time to sit and think about what they can do and this and that. It wasn't surprising to me to find that out."

Sheriff Anthony says the man could face charges of impersonating an officer and could be sentenced to more prison time.
