JEFFERSON DAVIS COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Jeff Davis County authorities need the public's help in identifying a person who is impersonating a police officer.

The person police are searching for is a white male, in his 40s, wearing a white and grey uniform shirt, black pants and full duty gear according to Jeff Davis County investigator Zack Jackson. 
 
According to Jackson, the person is driving an unmarked dark colored Ford Crown Victoria with blue lights on the dash board and no car tag. 

"Around 10 this morning, this person stopped a female on Highway 13 near Highway 43," said Jackson. 

Jackson said the female was not harmed in the incident. 

"We do want everyone to maintain the traffic laws, but if this happens try to travel to a well lit location," said Jackson. 

If you have any information regarding this person call authorities at 601-792-5169.
