FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (WSPA) – The Fountain Inn Police Department is warning drivers to be careful after someone pretending to be a police officer pulled drivers over last weekend.

The department said the person initiated traffic stops in a vehicle with a single, steady blue light.

When police pull someone over, the department said, drivers should see blue and white lights flashing in a pattern and hear a loud siren.

If a driver is pulled over by an unmarked vehicle and is suspicious of a traffic stop, they should call 911 or the department’s non-emergency number 864-862-4461, slow down, turn their vehicle’s hazard lights and look for a safe, well lit area to pull over.

Assistant Police Chief Melissa Woods said only one fake stop has been reported. The victim of that stuff called 911 to notify police. The Fountain Inn Police Department has not made any arrests, and is investigating the fake stop.

Anyone with information is asked to call (864) -862-4461.
