Drivers warned of police impersonator in Loveland

LOVELAND, Colo. — Drivers in Loveland are being warned after a police impersonator pulled over a woman near Interstate 25.

Investigators are concerned because the impersonator hasn’t been caught and there’s a chance he could do it again. It happened just after midnight Sunday in the neighborhood near McWhinney Boulevard and Grays Peak Drive, a few miles west of I-25.

Police say the man was driving an SUV with a red light displayed up front. When he pulled over the woman, she was suspicious and called police. Dispatchers confirmed with her that the man wasn’t an officer and she drove off.

Loveland police say it does use unmarked vehicles. Police say if you get pulled over and are suspicious about the situation, they say to to stop in a well-lit area. If the person isn’t in uniform, ask to see credentials, or you can call 911.

The investigation continues and there is no word on the make and model of the SUV, and there is no detailed description of the impersonator.
