Atlanta-area police seek same fake officer in 2 sex assaults


Police in metro Atlanta say two sexual assault cases about a man posing as a law enforcement officer are similar enough to believe the same person is suspected.

Atlanta police Maj. Michael O'Connor said at a news conference Monday the man who assaulted a woman early Friday is potentially the same suspect in another assault roughly four hours later in neighboring Cobb County. The women reported being alone when stopped by a man driving a dark-colored sedan with a blue light bar on the roof. He was described as wearing a star-shaped badge and had asked to see a driver's license.

Both O'Connor and Cobb County police Capt. Dan Ferrell said investigators are working to identify the suspect and are looking for surveillance cameras that may have caught his vehicle.

    This happened multiple times over 20 years ago in NJ prompting the then Governor to stop the practice of unmarked vehicles performing traffic stops. I think that is the reasonable response. If an unmarked vehicle ever tried to stop me I would travel slowly to a well lit public area and never stop on some side road or isolated neighborhood street. Any looneytoon can get lights for his/her vehicle and wear a costume to impersonate law enforcement as well as get a badge that looks real enough. Unmarked vehicles have their place, but not in traffic stops.

    Don't think the loss of this piece of garbage would be such a bad thing, just saying in case Law Enforcement were to run into any problems while trying to apprehend this suspect.
