GRAND JUNCTION, Mich. – Van Buren County Sheriff deputies are on the lookout for a man who is impersonating a police officer.

According to the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department, an incident happened Saturday afternoon outside of Grand Junction. Deputies state that the man with a military style haircut was wearing a police style uniform when he pulled over a vehicle.

The police impersonator asked for a license and registration from the driver and said that there was a warrant out of their arrest. The impersonator then told the driver that he could post a $100 bond or go to jail.

The driver paid the impersonator $100, but then called deputies when he did not get a receipt for the transaction.

The victim told deputies that the impersonator was driving a tan or gold Ford Crown Victoria. The victim also told deputies that the car had an overhead light bar which was used to pull over the driver.

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to call the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department at 269-657-2006
