Georgia woman arrested for impersonating GBI official
Police say a Georgia woman who knocked on doors claiming to be from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been arrested for impersonating a government official.
Tracy Lynn Allen, 54, was arrested Thursday, according to Cobb County Jail records.
On March 10, Allen began knocking on doors in a neighborhood in Cobb County, according to FOX 5 Atlanta.

She was also heard during the late night meet asking for someone who didn’t live at the residence.
