Deputies with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office are investigating an incident of a subject impersonating a deputy. 

The subject is described as a tall African American male with a muscular build wearing a dark button up shirt with a badge of some sort and a gun on his hip. 

He was driving a black Chevy Impala with yellow markings like the newer patrol cars of the GCSO.  The exception is that the suspect’s car only had Greenville CO. and not Greenville County Sheriff's Office.  The suspect has already pulled at least one person over. The sheriff's office wants the public to know that none of the black with yellow striped patrol cars are Chevy Impalas but are in fact Dodge Chargers and Ford Explorers.  The sheriff's office also still uses some patrol cars that are the older blue with yellow marking.

At anytime you are being signaled to pull over by law enforcement to pull over in a well lit and public place and that you can also call in to our dispatch to confirm the traffic stop. 

Anyone with information on this subject is encouraged to call in to the sheriff's office or crime stoppers 23-crime.
