City of Cortland Police report that Wednesday night at about 7:50, a woman was pulled over by what she believed was a law officer.
The stop was on Rt 281 in front of St. Mary’s Cemetery.
The driver said the vehicle that stopped her had red and white flashing lights, the person who approached her vehicle stood behind the driver’s side window.
She remembers the person saying she had a bad muffler but would not receive a ticket. Because it was dark and raining she couldn’t tell if the person wore a uniform.
He was described as about six feet tall, thin, and in his mid-30s.
Cortland Police checked with other agencies and it doesn’t appear that any local police department made the stop.
Anyone with information is asked to call Cortland City Police.
