The Madison County Sheriff's Department is warning motorists to be aware of a man who is going around impersonating a police officer.

The man, described as a white male, 30-40 years old, about 6-foot-3 with crew-cut brown hair, has pulled over at least one motorist.

According to reports, he used a flashing blue light to convince a woman in Godfrey to pull over. He flashed a badge at the woman and then told her he was going to let her off with a warning for a registration violation.

Anyone who has information about the suspect or who has had a similar encounter, is asked to contact the Madison County Sheriff's Department at 692-4433.
