After an Illinois primary election that saw relatively low turnout yesterday, one metro-east sheriff is out, another is in.
Glen Carbon Police Chief John Lakin took 64 percent of the vote to defeat Madison County Sheriff Bob Hertz in the Democratic primary. With no Republican candidate, Lakin will officially win the post in November.
St. Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson had been appointed in 2012 to replace the late Mearl Justus. Watson easily won the Democratic nomination. Again, no Republican candidate means he'll begin his first full term after the November election.
Madison County authorities want to hear from anyone who may have witnessed a traffic stop along Godfrey Road just south of the Jersey County border about 6 p.m. Friday. That's where a 17 year old girl reported being pulled over by a man in a large, white car who may have been impersonating a police officer.
The man is described as a white male, about 30 to 40 years old, about 6'1' to 6'3' with a brown crew cut, no facial hair and wearing a blue button-up shirt and dark pants.
Madison County Sheriffs Captain Mike Dixon says investigators don't know yet if the man was an impostor, but it's important they find out.
Dixon says they suspect the man was impersonating an officer because his car had only a flashing blue light, when real police usually have both red and blue or just red lights.
But he also cautions that police do use unmarked cars to make traffic stops. Dixon says if anyone feels uneasy after being pulled over, they should call 9-1-1.
