Authorities: Man impersonated cop, conducted fake motor vehicle stop

WEST BRUNSWICK TWP., Pa. - Authorities in Schuylkill County are on the hunt for a man who apparently impersonated a police officer during a fake motor vehicle stop.

Officials said it happened around 10 p.m. Saturday, March 22 on Route 61 near Penn Street in West Brunswick Township.

A motorist told state police she was pulled over after being approached from behind by a dark-colored SUV with a flashing red and white light-bar on its roof.

After pulling over, the motorist said she was approached by a man who got out of the SUV and inferred he was a police officer. The motorist said the man told her she was being pulled over because she was flicking cigarette ashes out of her car window and asked to see her driver's license and other credentials.

She said the man gave her a warning, got back into the SUV and drove off.

Police said the man did not attempt to lure the motorist to another location or take her into custody.

The suspect is described as being white, in this late 30s to early 40s, about six-feet three inches in height with a medium to muscular build. He has a bald/clean-shaven head, no facial hair, and was wearing blue jeans and a black t-shirt.

Anyone with information is asked to contact State Police in Schuylkill Haven at 570-739-1330.
