LOVELAND, Colo. - Authorities say a driver was stopped by a police impersonator in Loveland, the third such report along the Front Range in less than three weeks.
A Loveland man told police he was pulled over late Tuesday or early Wednesday by a car with red and blue flashing lights but no police markings. A man in a police-style uniform asked for his identification but didn't give any reason for the stop. He then said the driver could go.
The driver became suspicious after speaking with a relative who is a law-enforcement officer. Loveland police say they confirmed the uniformed man wasn't an officer from the Loveland area.
