Weld County sheriff warns of police impersonator targeting women – The Denver Post
The Weld County Sheriff’s Office is warning of a police impersonator after numerous incidents in the last several weeks near Erie in both Boulder and Weld counties.
According to officials, the impersonator is described as a clean-shaven man with an average build, standing around 6 feet tall with brown hair. He has been seen wearing a black button-down short-sleeve shirt with black pants and a utility belt that includes a baton.
Deputies said the man has been targeting female drivers.
Just after midnight on Friday, a woman said she was pulled over by the suspect, driving a black sedan with red and blue lights, the sheriff’s office said in a release. Deputies arrived at the scene at Interstate 25 and Erie Parkway, where the woman said she noticed the suspect did not have a police badge. When she asked the man to present it, he tried to lure her back to his car, but instead, she called the police. The man drove away.
The sheriff’s office said this closely matches calls received on July 26 and 27 and one the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office got last week.
Officials are asking motorists to call 911 if they are being pulled over by anyone suspicious.
