Cop Impostor Copycat Reported on West Side


There’s been yet another report of a police impersonator in the Springfield area.

 

The latest incident occurred before dawn Monday, when a 79-year-old reported an encounter with someone pretending to be a cop.

 

The man reported that an SUV came up behind him as he traveled on Curran Road, flashed its brights and displayed a flashing yellow light.

 

The SUV then passed the man and swerved in front of him, forcing him to stop.

 

A passenger got out of the SUV and gestured as if he had a gun, and ordered the man out of the vehicle.

 

The man refused. The SUV occupants eventually let the man proceed.

 

Undersheriff Jack Campbell says this appears to be a copycat incident and not the work of the individual who was pulling people over in that vicinity earlier this year.
