There’s another reported incident of a police impersonator pulling over a young woman on a remote highway… and Sangamon County authorities say there are reasons to think it may involve the same individual suspected in two other local cases.
The latest incident happened earlier this week, near Shipman in Macoupin County. A woman reported that a man in an unmarked vehicle with flashing lights pulled her over and asked to see her license. The man ultimately let the woman go.
The Macoupin County victim said the man had a shirt and hat with the word “Police” embroidered on them, and she described a dark-colored car… not the white vehicle reported in the Sangamon County stops. But local authorities say there are enough similarities to cause concern, and they are asking anyone with timely tips to contact police.
