Sheriff looking for Impersonator

HUTCHINSON, Kansas (AP) — The Reno County Sheriff’s Department is looking for a red Chevrolet Impala that apparently tried to pull a motorist over using red and yellow lights mounted on the dashboard.

A motorist called 911 at 4:02 p.m. Thursday to say an older, bald man wearing a brown jacket tried to make a traffic stop, but the motorist didn’t think he was a real officer and kept driving.

Sheriff’s spokesman Capt. Wayne Baughman says neither his department nor any other local law enforcement agencies use red Impalas.

Baughman urges anyone who thinks they are being pulled over by someone impersonating an officer to call 911.
