The Becker County Sheriff’s Office received a report from a woman Monday who said she had been pulled over by someone impersonating law enforcement officer.

The woman was traveling north Becker County Highway 7 when a vehicle traveling in front of her activated white and blue lights.

The man who exited the vehicle was believed to be 25 to 30 years old, 6 feet in height, wearing a goatee, a black winter hat and a dark jacket. The woman also said he had what appeared to be a radio microphone on the lapel of his jacket.

He approached the driver’s side of her vehicle and told her she had a broken taillight. He also asked for her identification and asked her to step out of the vehicle to look at the broken light.

Not convinced that she was actually speaking with an officer, the woman asked for his law enforcement credentials. At that point the  man returned to his vehicle, described as a newer, white Jeep and left the scene. 

The Becker County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in identifying the male driver. The phone number of the sheriff’s office is 218-847-2661. 

Becker County Sheriff Todd Glander advises anyone being stopped by someone they do not feel is a law enforcement officer to call 911 immediately.
