Hampshire County Authorities warn of cop impersonator
The Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) issued a warning of a person trying to impersonate a Police Officer.
This warning follows a report of a female driver being suspicious of an attempt to pull her over by a Utility Terrain Vehicle using flashing red and blue lights in the Voit Road old Martinsburg Grade Road area in Slainsville.
The woman reported that the male driver wearing a hoodie style shirt made more than one attempt to conduct a traffic stop in the evening of Mar. 20.
The woman, who sensed something was out of the ordinary continued to a safe place and called 911.
Officers responded and canvased the area in question but were unable to locate the individual.
Authorities are advising caution if traveling alone and report any suspicious activity to 911 immediately.
If you are suspicious always try to reach a safe location for instance the Police or Sheriff’s Office if possible before pulling over.
Anyone with any information in any incident like this should contact the Hampshire County Sheriff’s Office.
If you have security cameras in that area please review footage from Mar. 20 and turn any leads over to Authorities.
