SHERIDAN, Colo. — Sheridan Police are looking for a male police impersonator after a woman was pulled over Wednesday morning.

Police say the woman driver was pulled over by a black vehicle that activated a type of dash-mounted emergency lights about 7:40 a.m. in the northbound lanes in the 3600-3800 block of South Santa Fe Drive, just south of West Hampden Avenue.

Police say the woman reported the lights were red and blue LED lights and she pulled to the side of the road while the black vehicle pulled behind her. The driver of the black car then approached the woman and asked for her driver’s license, registration and proof of insurance.

Police say the man took the items and went back to his vehicle, then returned and asked the woman to get out of her car. She refused, rolled up her window and drove off. The male suspect made no attempt to stop her.

The man is described as white, 6-foot-2 to 6-foot-4 tall with short blond hair and a thin beard. He was wearing a dark blue uniform with short sleeves, a police type of duty belt and black gloves with no visible signs of a badge, insignia or weapon.

The black vehicle is described as a newer model sedan with a silver spotlight on the driver’s side.

Anyone who might have witnessed the incident or has information on the case is asked to call Det. Brett Cutler at 303-438-3246 or the Sheridan Police Department at 303-762-2211.
