Yet another woman has reported an encounter with a possible police impersonator.
The Sangamon County Sheriff’s Office received a report from an 18-year-old woman who says her car was followed by a vehicle with flashing red-and-blue lights… but no front license plate… on Old Route 36 near Curran Friday night. The woman says she turned on her emergency lights and kept driving. The white car that was trailing her turned off the road and drove away.
It’s at least the third such incident reported in Sangamon County in the past month. The sheriff’s department notes that the incident was not reported until nearly nine hours after it happened… and asks anyone involved in a similar incident to call 911 immediately.
