South Jersey's ‘Holly Wood' Impersonates an Officer: Police

A South Jersey woman driving her elderly father faces charges of impersonating a police officer after police said she supplied outdated ID during a traffic stop.

A Winslow Township Police officer pulled over Holly Wood’s car around 11 a.m. Thursday at Williamstown and Sicklerville roads in Sicklerville, New Jersey because the car had tinted windows, tinted front windshield and tinted license plate cover, police said.

During the stop, Wood, 44, identified herself as a Chester County corrections officers and supplied corrections officer ID, said police.

The officer ran the Blackwood woman’s information and found an active warrant for her arrest. Further investigation revealed that Wood hasn’t worked as a corrections officer for nine years, said police.

Police said previous traffic stops of Wood would be reviewed and that they expect additional impersonating an officer charges.

William Wood, 72, who was in the passenger seat, identified himself as a retired Philadelphia Police officer. Wood’s dad was also taken into custody after an arrest warrant from Atlantic City came up for William Wood, said police. Investigators didn’t reveal if he actually served as a Philly officer.

Police arrested both Woods without incident on the outstanding warrants. William Wood was released on bail while Holly Wood was sent to county jail while she awaited impersonating officer charges.
