Jonesboro driver reports being pulled over by unmarked vehicle with a spotlight

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police and the Craighead County Sheriff's Office responded to a suspicious activity call early Tuesday morning.

A man called Jonesboro E-911 at 1:51 a.m. to say he was pulled over near the area of Greensboro Road and Highway 351, by a man driving an unmarked gray car equipped with a spotlight.

The caller told dispatch the man was wearing a police uniform with no badge.

A Jonesboro police officer and a sheriff's deputy responded to the scene and searched the area for nearly an hour.

Jonesboro Police Department public information director Paul Holmes said Jonesboro police will always have a badge, including criminal investigators. Jonesboro police also use a blue light instead of a spotlight alone.

Holmes said people should be careful and can call for help if needed.

"Come to the police department if you can or otherwise pull over in a well-lighted area perhaps where there are other people around and after you stop you can certainly call 911," Holmes said.

Officers were not able to find the vehicle.
