It appears someone has been making traffic stops in southeast Arkansas while posing as a police officer, according to local law enforcement.

This person is believed to have made traffic stops in Ashley and Chicot counties using blue lights on both a green Dodge and a red Chevrolet. Other vehicles may have been used as well, according to a release issued by area officials.

An arrest was made in the case, however, the suspect’s identity remained confidential at press time as officials hope citizens will continue to come forward with more identifying information. Anyone stopped recently by an unmarked vehicle with flashing blue lights is being asked to contact investigators with Ashley County Sheriff’s Office at 870-853-2040 or Chicot County Sheriff’s Office at 870-265-8020. The joint investigation also involved Portland Police Department.
