Springfield police don’t think a report of an apparent police impersonator this week is connected to a string of similar incidents earlier this year.
The latest incident happened Monday night near Sangamon Avenue and Piper Road.
A 19-year-old male says he pulled over after someone in a Crown Victoria shined a bright light into his rear view mirror.
A man described as biracial in his mid-20s approached the vehicle and asked to see a license and registration.
The victim asked to see a badge, and the man said he was undercover and didn’t have one.
The victim locked his windows and doors, and the man sped off. Police are asking anyone with information to call Crimestoppers.
