CARROLLTON, Mo. (KMOV) – A man disguised as a fake police officer could be targeting women.
Carrollton police say a man posing as an officer stopped a young woman on the road and made her get out of her vehicle to pat her down. The man later told the woman he was going back to his vehicle to look up her criminal record, but instead drove away.
The man, who was in an old, tan sedan, had a blue flashing light in his vehicle that was similar to those in a cop car.
Officers are investigating a similar incident north of Greene County.
