Police impersonator stops woman in Monterey Park

Monterey Park police are investigating a police impersonator, EGP News reports. The man, described as a male adult in his 30s, was driving a car with red and blue lights on the grill and upper windshield. 

The man pulled the woman over and started asking her unusual questions before telling her to move to the passenger seat of her car. When the woman asked for police identification, he declined and told her to go home. Monterey Park police say all officers carry police identification and show it upon request. At night, those who are stopped by police can drive to a well-lit, populated area, just as long as they do not try to evade or flee.

If anyone has a similar experience, they are encouraged to contact Detective Alvarez at (626) 307-1226.
