Police Look For Man Who Impersonated Police Officer

Posted: Updated:

STOCKBRIDGE, Mich. (WLNS) - Michigan State Police are warning people to be on the look-out for a man they say impersonated a police officer, pulled a man over and robbed him with a gun.

It happened Monday evening in the southeast corner of Stockbridge Township near M-52.

Police say the man is in his early 20s. The suspect was last seen wearing dark clothing, a black baseball cap and black gloves. He was driving an older model, dark blue, 4-door sedan when he used lights on his dashboard and hand signals to make a driver think he was being pulled over.

Police say the car the suspect was driving has a spotlight on the driver's side mirror, but does NOT have any police markings on the car. They say the car is clearly not a police vehicle and did not have a siren.

Police say when the man approached the car, he had a handgun and took money from the driver.

Anyone who thinks they see the car is urged to call 9-1-1 or MSP.

If you believe you're being pulled over by a car that isn't driven by a law enforcement officer, officials say you can always call 9-1-1 to make sure.
