Anderson County Sheriff Uniforms and Guns Stolen

Apparently in the past couple of weeks there have been multiple auto thefts where the thieves targeted Anderson County patrol cars and undercover vehicles. Guns were stolen, but more importantly uniforms were. While the gun thefts are more sensational the uniform thefts are much more dangerous.

I suspect that someone is planning on impersonating the police for some nefarious reason, and since there have been at least four of these thefts in the past two weeks there is more than one person involved. This is a scary situation and one we should be wary of. If an Anderson County deputy approaches you double check their credentials.

    It’s always a good idea to have a cell phone handy when you’re out and about. Even if your cellphone has been disconnected, you can still call 9-1-1 from it. Use it if you suspect that a phony police officer is trying to pull you over and drive directly to the nearest police station.

    heard this on the radio again this morning with some other details….. ponder this…. what if the Anderson Sheriffs needed some new vests and updated shotguns… or whatever, and the county council didn’t want to raise the budget…. seems it would be an inside job then… Just Saying.

    On the one hand, that would be a relief to citizens… make them feel a little safer. But on the other hand, how safe could they feel with corrupt officers?

    If it was an inside job the whole department needs to be fired.

    This is the perfect time to speed through Anderson and not stop when you see the blue lights behind you…. when they finally blow your tires out and pull their guns on you, you tell them you thought they were fake cops…. ok, maybe not the best idea
