Deputies investigating alleged fake cop who pulled woman over near state line
EAST FELICIANA PARISH - Officials are investigating reports of an individual impersonating a cop who tried to pull over a driver near the state line.
The East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office met with other agencies to discuss the incident which happened Sept. 20 as a woman was heading north on Highway 19. She said the person pulled her over just across the Louisiana-Mississippi state line, but she left when she felt something was wrong.
The phony officer reportedly drove a black Dodge Charger with dark-tinted windows.
Officials have not released further information about the incident.
A similar incident was reported in St. Charles, but it's unclear if there is any connection between the two.
State Police joined the case Thursday.
