The Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice is look­ing into a sus­pi­cious traf­fic stop re­ported by a woman on Satur­day. The woman, who thought the of­fi­cer’s con­duct was strange the night be­fore, re­ported the in­ci­dent to po­lice, but they found that no of­fi­cer had ini­ti­ated a traf­fic stop at that time.

On the night of March 24, the woman was re­port­edly pulled over in the area of Billings­ley Road and Leonard­town Road in Wal­dorf by an older model car, per­haps a Crown Vic­to­ria, with emer­gency lights, a sher­iff’s of­fice spokesper­son said. The pur­ported of­fi­cer, de­scribed as an adult black male with a stocky build, told her she was stopped be­cause of a bro­ken tail light and asked for her driver’s li­cense and ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tion. Af­ter a few min­utes, he re­turned her be­long­ings and left with­out iden­ti­fy­ing him­self or say­ing any­thing fur­ther.

The women, who found his be­hav­ior strange, re­ported the in­ci­dent to the sher­iff’s of­fice on March 25, a spokesper­son said. Af­ter re­view­ing records, it was de­ter­mined that no sher­iff’s of­fice deputy or Mary­land State Po­lice trooper had ini­ti­ated the re­ported traf­fic stop.

Po­lice say no sim­i­lar in­ci­dents have been re­ported. Any sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ences should be re­ported to the sher­iff’s of­fice by call­ing 301-932-2222.
