Maui police issued a public advisory after a social media site posted a warning about a woman who claimed being pulled over by someone posing as a police officer.

MPD was made aware of the post, however department officials say they have not been made aware of any such incident that occurred in the area and timeframe in the post shared by the site or any other recent incident.

“We will continue to look into the claim that a report of some sort was made,” police said.

As a general safety rule, police advise that if you are pulled over or approached by an unmarked or unidentifiable car and/or individual claiming to be an officer, and you are unsure about it, drive to an area with people or visible to others and stay in your car.

Call 9-1-1 to verify the stop.
