WARNING - please call 911

This message is from a Sandy Springs resident-

Yesterday I had a frantic driver flag me down at a traffic light. He was on my passenger side honking & waving. He told me that my ‘wheel’ was falling off my front passenger side. He said he worked for Hennessey Lexus and had the tool in his truck to fix it. He said pull over and he would fix it, warned me that I would not make it a few more blocks. He was in a new truck (Ford) with a cardboard dealer tag & Very insistent that I pull over for my own safety.

I thanked him and turned around to get to my dealer to look at the car. As I got out of my car at the dealer & asked the service rep about my car, ‘he’ repeated ‘my’ story & said I was the 3rd driver in with that story this week. The Dealer had not reported this to the police yet. I called Roswell police, went & filed a report. This guy is apparently also employed by Cherokee Ford, Nalley Toyota, and several other Dealership.

Please be careful & please alert your parents, kids, friends, The police have been looking for this guy, call ASAP if he approaches you. A light skinned African American, heavyset, middle aged.

I have received similar warnings for years, never thought it would be me who was approached………..This guy has been targeting Older couples & single women.
