Valdosta - Blue lights in your rear-view mirror usually mean pull over, you've done something wrong. But Lowndes County investigators have a warning. "We've got a gentleman posing as an undercover officer in an unmarked car and stopping females in the Lowndes County area," said Captain David Arnold.
Last week, the suspect pulled over a woman near Hahira. "She said 'I know the sheriff, and he lives just a few miles from here, let's go down to his house,' then she headed towards the sheriff's house, and he drove off in another direction," said Arnold.
Since then, investigators have heard of eight similar stories. The suspect is described as a white male in his late 20's or early 30's, driving a dark car. "He's got lights on it, and activates the stop just like a regular police officer," said Arnold.
Investigators aren't sure of the suspect's intentions, but he could be targeting college females. Valdosta State University Police Chief Scott Donor is warning students. "We sent out a notice about it on the V.S.U web page, and also to all V.S.U. email accounts," said Donor.
So how can you make sure you're not a victim? "Drive on down to where there're witnesses and a well lit area, then pull over there," said Arnold. "You can also call 911 to verify that the person pulling you over is an actual police officer."
Investigators say the suspect has probably pulled over more women in the area. They urge anyone who's been stopped by a suspicious officer to call the Lowndes County Sheriff's Department.
