Police Say They Rescued Woman After She ‘Discreetly' Alerted Trooper During Traffic Stop
A Pennsylvania woman who was reported missing and possibly endangered was located by police later the same day during a traffic stop, authorities said.
Officers pulled over a Ram pickup truck after the driver had committed "multiple traffic violations” while driving in Berks County just before midnight on Feb. 10, Pennsylvania State Police said.
The 34-year-old woman was a passenger in the pickup truck and police said she “discreetly alerted troopers to possible criminal activity."
After getting the attention of the troopers, they removed her from the vehicle.
The driver, believed to be 45 to 50 years old, provided the officers with a fake ID before he sped off, officials said.
Troopers learned the man allegedly had been holding the woman against her will.
