An Irwinville resident has recently notified the authorities after being pulled over by a fake cop. The woman declared that the fake police officer left as soon as her dog started growling at him. Authorities are currently on the lookout for the suspect.
Fake Cop Rode in an Unmarked Vehicle
The Irwinville resident, whose identity the authorities refused to disclose, declared that she was driving on the Georgia Highway 32 when she was pulled over by an individual driving a Dodge Charger car near the Turner County and Waterloo Rebecca Highway line.
According to the woman’s affidavit, the car had no license plates and was equipped with a blue and white light signal. The woman told the authorities that she did not see the individual, just the blue and white lights.
Upon stopping the vehicle, the woman was approached by a shady individual wearing a ski mask, dark clothing, and wielding a knife. As he drew closer to the car’s door, the woman’s dog, who was riding in the back seat, started to growl and bark.
Reportedly, when the individual saw the woman’s dog, he backed away, went into his vehicle and left. Alarmed by this encounter, the woman dialed 911 and asked the operator about her encounter who answered that she was the victim of an individual impersonating a law enforcement officer.
According to the Irwinville County Sheriff’s office, legitimate personnel will only ride in vehicles with blue lights only. Furthermore, law enforcement officers are dressed in a silver uniform, not black.
At the moment, the Irwinville County Sheriff’s office is on the lookout for the fake cop. The County’s Sheriff declared that the best way to tell if the officer that pulls you over is a legitimate law enforcement officer is to dial 911 and to request information on the agent.
