Stuart police seek cop impersonator

STUART, Fla. - Stuart police are looking for the man who impersonated a police officer.

On Wednesday December 11th, a woman reported that a suspicious unmarked police vehicle pulled her over.

She was stopped by a white Crown Victoria with a blue light flashing on the dashboard as she was traveling southbound on the Roosevelt Bridge, according to police.

The light appeared to be an older model rotary light.

When the woman stopped her car a man described as a Hispanic male with a mustache and partial beard, wearing a black button down polo shirt and blue jeans, approached her car, according to a police report.

The woman handed the man her paperwork and the man, who was posing as an officer, told her to get out of the car.

When the woman asked the man for his badge number the man walked back to his car and returned shortly and told her she was lucky he had another call to go to, according to the police.

Stuart police urge drivers not to stop for an unofficial police vehicle. The department says if you are suspicious, call 911 and dispatchers will be able to confirm whether law enforcement is attempting to stop you.
