SCSO Warns of Officer Impersonator

The Simpson County Sheriff’s Department reported that a suspect has been recently seen impersonating a police officer. Investigator Chris Wallace said the suspect has been reported for stopping people on Highway 28 near Maddox Fruit Stand.  The suspect was described to be a white male of stocky build with spike hair. He is driving a white Crown Victoria with old Simpson County markings and a single blue light in the dashboard. He is believed to be targeting women.

Wallace said the department has received two reports of the subject stopping people. The department is asking people who believe they have been stopped by the imposter to engage their emergency flashers and call 911. Victims should give the dispatcher their location and proceed to a well-lit area or the nearest police department.
