Man reportedly impersonating law enforcement officer in western Minnesota

DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—A woman was stopped on a county road north of Lake Park, Minnesota this week by a vehicle she thought was a law enforcement officer.

The Becker County Sheriff’s Office says it was an impersonator.

The vehicle traveling in front of her had activated blue and white lights on the rear window.

A man approached the driver’s side of the woman’s car and told her she had a broken light and asked for her I-D and to get out of her vehicle. The woman was suspicious and asked if she could see his law enforcement credentials.

The man then got back into his vehicle and left the scene.

The vehicle is described as a newer, white Jeep. The man is believed to be 25-to-30 years old, 6 feet tall, with a goatee beard who appeared to have a radio microphone on the lapel of his jacket.

Sheriff Todd Glander says if anyone has information on the identification of the driver of the Jeep or have had similar incidents, to contact the Sheriff’s office in Detroit Lakes at 218-847-2661.
