Impersonating A Police Officer
The Daviess County Sheriff’s office is investigating a report of impersonating a police officer. Tuesday at about 10:00 am, a white male wearing a law enforcement-style uniform driving a vehicle described as a black Dodge Charger with police markings with emergency lights inside the vehicle, made a traffic stop on a person on Missouri Highway 6 near Gallatin. The man represented himself as a law enforcement officer and issued the driver citations from New York state.
The person told the Sheriff’s Department there was an unknown make, white cargo-style van driving in front of their vehicle that may have been working in conjunction with the individual posing as an officer.
If anyone has information relevant to this investigation, they should contact the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department at (660) 663-2031.
