Officials in Virden now say that a report of another police impersonator incident appears to be unfounded.
A motorist called authorities Thursday to report a man in an unmarked vehicle with a flashing light on the dash. The motorist did not pull over, and the other car eventually passed him.
But after investigating, authorities now tell the SJ-R the other motorist may have just flashed his headlights at the first driver, and was not attempting to pull him over. They say there is no apparent connection to a handful of police impersonation incidents in Sangamon and Macoupin Counties in recent weeks.
