According to authorities, a lady from Georgia who had been posing as a representative of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and knocking on doors has been detained for impersonating an official.
According to the Cobb County Jail’s records, Tracy Lynn Allen, 54, was detained on Thursday.
According to the report, on March 10, Allen started pounding on doors in a particular Cobb County community. She was seen on one of the homes’ Ring doorbell cameras, which said she worked with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. She was also heard asking for someone who didn’t reside at the house during the late-night visit.
She was heard stating, “Tell them Tracy Allen with the GBI is looking for them,” on the doorbell camera.
The house residents claimed to have also seen what seemed to be a pistol holster tucked inside the woman’s pant waistband.
Officers, including undercover agents, will always have some sort of identification on them, according to Cobb County Police Sgt. Wayne Delk, who spoke to FOX 5 Atlanta.
After learning that Allen had made a threat against various Cobb County law enforcement agencies on social media, Dallas Police said they also contacted other law enforcement organizations in the neighborhood.
Allen’s pretended affiliation with the GBI is for unknown reasons.
Allen was arrested for felony impersonating a public officer or employee and brought into the Cobb County Adult Detention Center. Around $3,000 was established as her bond.
