From Glynn County Police:
Glynn County Police would like to warn the public of a possible police impersonator. There have been two reports made to GCPD in which residents allege being stopped by an unknown person posing as a law enforcement officer. Both events are reported to have taken place in the early evening hours and in the Touchstone Parkway area.
In both cases the suspect was driving a dark color, possibly black, full size SUV, possibly a Chevrolet Tahoe or similar vehicle. The vehicle is believed to have some type of writing on the side. In both events, the suspect used a blue light possibly attached to their vehicle dash which compelled the citizen to stop.
The suspect is described as a middle age white male, medium to large build, bald head, with a salt and pepper goatee style beard about an inch or so in length. He was described as wearing a dark blue or black polo shirt and khaki pants. The residents did not report seeing a weapon.
After the residents stopped for the suspect, he demanded their license and provided a vague reason for the stop. In each case, he left when a supervisor was requested. Unfortunately, the citizens did not report these events when they took place.
Glynn County Police Investigations Division is actively working to identify the suspect.
If anyone has information about this suspect or if you have had a similar encounter, please call Glynn County Police non-emergency number at912 554 3645or Silent Witness at912 264 1333.
Additionally, if any vehicle with blue lights, marked or unmarked, tries to stop you, please turn on your hazards, wave to the vehicle and proceed to a safe well lighted location such as an open store. If the vehicle is not clearly marked and you have a concern, immediately call911and advise them where you are, your vehicle description and then the description of the possible police vehicle.
