Pike Co. Sheriffâ€™s Office: Beware of Fake Law Enforcement Officers
The Pike County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents to be aware of three men claiming to be members of the Fugitive Task Force.
The men are driving in a tan van with Tennessee license plates.
Police say they entered a Petersburg residence wearing badges, possibly to case the residence.
One man was in the back of the van wearing handcuffs.
They had a flyer of a man they said they were looking for named Richard Smith.
However, they failed to leave behind a flyer or a number to call if the resident saw Richard Smith.
The Pike County Sheriff’s Office says if you encounter these individuals, contact your local law enforcement agency.
