Police are currently investigating reports of two suspects that are approaching citizens in the Texarkana area claiming to be undercover police officers.
According to Texarkana, Arkansas Police Department these suspects are telling innocent people that they have committed a crime and request part of the fine upfront in lieu of them going to jail.
According to police the suspects have gone so far as to pat the victims down and place them in their vehicle before taking their wallets.
Both suspects are working together, possibly driving a black Ford Explorer, silver GMC Acadia, or gold Nissan Altima.
According to alerts from other police departments the suspects were likely traveling Interstate 30 targeting towns along the way. Rockwall, Sulphur Springs, and Mount Pleasant police departments all reported similar activity Sunday.
Anyone with information is strongly urged to call the TAPD Criminal Investigation Division at 903-798-3154 or CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
