The so-called ‘blue light bandit” of Western North Carolina has been brought into jail after the suspect attempted to pull two people over on a highway.
According to WBTV, James Miller had custom blue police lights installed on the top of his car. He then pulled two people over during the final weekend of February.
Those drivers reported their encounter with Miller to State Troopers, who were able to find the vehicle and its owner based on their description.
State Police have not indicated if Miller had pulled others over or his motivation in impersonating an officer.
State police are reminding the public that all unmarked vehicles have sirens as well as lights equipped to their vehicles. If they see the lights they are advised to either wait until they hear the siren before initiating the pull over, or activate their four way lights and find a well lit area to pull over.
