GEORGE COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Sheriff Keith Havard wants residents to be aware of a man impersonating a law enforcement officer in the George County and Lucedale areas.

The victim said the man was wearing a black shirt and pants and was carrying a firearm and handcuffs. The suspect was described as a white man standing 6' with short blonde hair.
Havard said investigators are now working to identify this impersonator.
