Rusk County Sheriff's Office warns public to be cognizant of carjacking tactics


The Rusk County Sheriff's Office is warning the public to be aware of possible carjacking activities in the area. 

An off duty deputy called 911 on Tuesday night to report being tailgated by another vehicle flashing its headlights.  

The car, a blue two-door hatchback, turned and sped off onto another highway a few miles down the road from the incident, according to the sheriff's office.  

The Rusk County Sheriff's Office said this is a tactic carjackers use in large cities. The sheriff's office is urging people to be cognizant of this activity. They urge residents not to stop, to call 911 and drive to a police station or sheriff's office for help.
