Sangamon County deputies are questioning two individuals in connection with one or more recent police impersonation incidents.
The suspects were located after a seventy-nine year old man was pulled over west of Springfield Monday morning. The victim gave police a detailed description of the vehicle including a license plate which led authorities to the teenage suspects.
Undersheriff Jack Campbell says the 19- and 17- year olds are being questioned but have not yet been charged. However, they did reportedly tell police that they had pulled over several other people in the same fashion.
Officials say there is no apparent connection to the very first fake cop incidents this year including one in which a 16 year old girl was assaulted. But they say they are still investigating to see what other incidents may involve these two suspects before deciding on charges.
