Crime Alert - Beware of police impersonator in Murphy



A 19-year old female was stopped earlier this morning at around 12:46 a.m. in the 200 block of Betsy Lane by a white male driving an unmarked white police sedan possibly a Ford Crown Victoria or Taurus. The suspect was described as a white male wearing a police type uniform. The suspect approached the female and stated, “step out of the car." The female told the suspect that she was calling 9-1-1. The suspect walked back to his car and sped westbound on Betsy Lane towards Plano. The female was unable to provide any other information.

The Murphy Police Department asks that all residents be aware of this incident. If you are ever stopped by an “unmarked” police vehicle proceed to a well-lit area, possibly a convenience store or a populated area, and call 9-1-1.
