Police Impersonator Reported In Loveland
LOVELAND, Colo. (AP/CBS4) – Authorities say a driver was stopped by a police impersonator in Loveland, the third such report along the Front Range in less than three weeks.
A Loveland man told police he was pulled over late Tuesday or early Wednesday by a car with red and blue flashing lights but no police markings. A man in a police-style uniform asked for his identification but didn’t give any reason for the stop. He then said the driver could go.
The driver became suspicious after speaking with a relative who is a law-enforcement officer. Loveland police say they confirmed the uniformed man wasn’t an officer from the Loveland area.
Police impersonators were reported in the Denver suburb of Sheridan on Wednesday and in Aurora on March 31.
Loveland Police released the following statement about the crime:
If anyone has any information about this case, please call Detective Gary Patzer. He can be reached at 970-962-2032.
