Police Impersonator Makes Traffic Stop

(La Porte County, IN) -  The La Porte County Sheriff's Office reports someone is out there impersonating as a Police Officer.  On Thursday morning, a female reported to authorities that she had been pulled over by a car with flashing lights on US 20 near Range Road.  She said the car was a light-colored Ford Focus or Toyota Prius.  The driver was described as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall. He wore black clothing and a mask bearing the logo of the Michigan City Police Department.  The woman did not comply with the man's request for documents, and he drove away westbound on 20. 


Police are looking for information on the impersonator.  Indiana Code requires all police officers to either be in uniform or driving a marked police vehicle to initiate a traffic stop.  Neither the Ford Focus nor the Toyota Prius are legit police vehicles in this area.
