Paulding Warns of Police Impersonators

ATLANTA (AP) -- Authorities are warning motorists to be wary of police impersonators who robbed a driver in Paulding County.

Sheriff Gary Gulledge said a black Ford Crown Victoria with a blue dashboard light stopped a woman late Friday.

Two men in business clothes approached the woman. One of the men took her wallet. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the men then fled.

Gulledge said drivers can always proceed to a well-lit area if they believe they are being pulled over by what appears to be a police vehicle.

In that case, the sheriff said drivers should travel below the speed limit and put their hazard lights on.

He said drivers can also call 911 to confirm a Paulding county deputy is pulling them over.

    Down here in Bonifay if you just kept going and wouldn't pull over these cops would call for back up and they'd box you in and they'd have their weapons drawn on you and then because you didn't pull over on your own, you'd be put in jail because you'd be looked at as being suppious.You' d do about a week in jail till they was sure you hadn't to have done something.
