A Georgia woman who knocked on doors claiming to be with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation was arrested for posing as an officer, police say.
Tracy Lynn Allen, 54, was arrested Thursday, Cobb County Jail records show.
Allen began knocking on doors in a Cobb County neighborhood on March 10, according to FOX 5 Atlanta. A ring doorbell camera on one of the houses picked her up and said she was with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. She was also heard during the night’s encounter asking about a person who did not live at the residence.
