PARKER, Colo. — Police in Parker are looking for a man who they say may be going around impersonating an officer.

The fake cop was driving a white sedan around 7:20 a.m. Sunday when he began to follow a driver at the intersection of Parker Road and Cottonwood Drive, according to a release from the department.

At the intersection of Parker Road and Parkglenn Way, the suspect turned on lights and sirens, but the victim didn’t pull over and instead drove to the police department, the release read.

The suspect is described as a white male with short black or brown hair, under the age of 40. He did not appear to be wearing a uniform at the time and his white sedan didn’t look like a police car, police said in the release.

This is the second time Parker police have sent out an alert regarding police impersonators. In March, a fake cop pulled a driver over near the intersection of Canterberry Trail and Paperflower Drive. The victim called 911 during the stop and the suspect took off.

Police are asking for the public’s assistance in the identification of the individual involved. If you have any information about this incident, police are asking you to call them at 303-805-6527.
