Fake cop pulls over Mid-South woman, gives alarming reason why

A woman was pulled over by a man who appeared to be a local law enforcement officer, but it turns out he was an impostor who is now wanted.

The incident happened around 8 p.m. Sunday in Forrest City, Arkansas.

The victim was driving on East Broadway when a white Dodge Charger drove up behind her and turned on blue lights. She pulled over in a nearby Exxon parking lot, according to a police report.

She was then approached by the suspect, who is described in the police report as a 6’2” Hispanic male. He was wearing a green t-shirt with “St. Francis County Undercover Officer” on the chest, according to the sheriff’s department.

The suspect told the victim “someone had been stopping females and he wanted her to get home safe,” according to the police report.

When a stranger began walking toward them from across the parking lot, the suspect told the woman she could leave. He got in his car and drove off, the report states.

The suspect was not associated with the St. Francis County Sheriff’s Department, and officials said nobody in the department wears a uniform or clothing of that nature.

A BOLO was issued for the suspect for impersonation of a law enforcement officer.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to call the St. Francis County Sheriff’s Department at 870-633-2611.
