Officer Impersonator Follows Teen Girl Home

By  | 

Lincoln police say someone impersonating an officer followed a teen girl Wednesday night.

According to police, a 17-year-old girl saw an old cop car with its emergency lights on while driving westbound on 27th & South Streets around 9:45 p.m.

Police say the girl pulled over but then heard a voice over the loud speaker say 'I am not pulling you over'. She continued and the police-style car followed her about two miles without lights on.

Police say once she turned into a driveway, the car turned around and drove-away.

She described the vehicle following her as a white older model police car with a blue stripe down the side and newer LED lights.

The case is eerily similar to one on July 19, 2012.

According to police, a 17-year-old girl was driving near 84th Street and Yankee Hill Road when a car turned on lights and sirens.

The girl pulled over and a man dressed as a police officer approached her car and asked for license and registration.

The girl told police that the man opened his shirt and said he was practicing for the movie Magic Mike.

The girl drove off quickly and was unharmed. She described the suspect as a white man, 20-years-old, 180 lbs, muscular with dark, bold eyes and short brown hair.
