DENVER (CBS4) – Police in Denver are sticking to their word and will destroy a car that was used in a suspected police impersonation case.
According to police, the car was used by police impersonation suspect Robert Montoya, 47, in an incident on Sept. 5, 2015. Montoya allegedly pulled over a Denver police detective at Park Avenue West and Blake Street while posing as a law enforcement agent.
“As part of the Nuisance Abatement Law, the car was seized and now will be shredded to pieces,” police said in a statement.
The car was equipped with a light kit, mounted laptop and a scanner radio.
“Very lucky for us, very unlucky for this individual,” Cmdr. Paul Pazen with Denver Police said in September. “The fact that somebody would go to this level to try to present themselves as law enforcement is very concerning.”
The car will be shredded on Thursday at 1 p.m. at Iron and Metals Inc. located at 5555 Franklin Street in Denver.
