Authorities have busted an alleged blue light bandit in Sampson County.

It came after two incidents Monday night in which women reported a car with a blue light tried to pull them over. Both women were suspicious and did not stop.

Mathew Arelleno, 21, turned himself in to the sheriff's office. When deputies searched his car, they found two blue lights.

Arelleno is charged with two felony counts of operating a blue light.
