A warning is being sent out to residents in The Woodlands after a woman there reported being pulled over by a man Montgomery County Sheriff's Office deputies believe was not an officer.

It happened on Thursday. The victim had turned onto Glenlock Drive from E. Panther Creek just before 6am. She told authorities that's when she noticed she was being followed by a newer model black Toyota Tundra.

The Tundra driver turned on red and blue lights that were on top of the truck and the woman pulled over into a parking lot. She says the Tundra driver got out and approached her, asking for her driver's license.

The woman reported that she became suspicious when the suspect didn't use a radio or his in-car computer.

The suspect reportedly then gave the woman her license back and lectured her about her driving habits.

Police say the suspect was a white male between the ages of 45 and 50, standing about 5-foot-10 and weighing roughly 190 pounds. He had blue eyes and was clean-shaven with a buzz cut. The victim says the man never identified himself as an officer.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to a $1,000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest or indictment of a felony crime. Call 800-392-STOP (7867). Anonymous tips can also be made through the Montgomery County Crime Stoppers Web Page at
