The Randolph County Sheriff's Department tells Region 8 news that a resident reported being pulled over by an unmarked white car with a bar light on top. The incident happened in the northern side of Pocahontas

The Sheriff's department says there are some things you can do if you are pulled over by an unmarked car and feel uncomfortable. They recommend that you pull in to a well-lit area, like a parking lot, and call dispatch.
