Maynard driver pulled over by police impersonator
A woman in Maynard was pulled over early Thursday morning by a man she thought was a police officer. But the so-called cop turned out to be just an impersonator.
It all began around 1 a.m. when the woman noticed another car had been following her for several miles. A blue flashing light was turned on, and the woman thought she was being pulled over, so she moved to the side of the road.
NECN reports that the woman told Maynard Police a man approached her car and ordered her to get out. She was eventually let go, but because she was suspicious she contacted Stow Police. Maynard and Stow police officers responded to the area but were unable to locate the suspect.
The woman described the suspect as a white man in his 40s, weighing about 225 pounds and more than 6 feet tall. He had short brown hair, facial scarring from acne and a feminine voice, according to NECN.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Maynard police at 978–897–1012.
