Calgary Man Posing As Police Officer, Stopping Vehicles: Police

CALGARY - The Calgary Police Service is looking for a man believed to be posing as an officer.

Police say a woman was driving in the city's southwest in the early morning when she noticed she was being followed by a silver sedan.

The car activated red-and-blue lights to pull her over, but she became suspicious when the driver got out and shone a flashlight in her face.

The woman called 911 and drove away, but the car followed her until she got to a police station.

Police say a man was pulled over in a similar fashion a short time later, but the suspicious vehicle sped away.

Impersonating an officer is a criminal offence.
