Suspect impersonates officer, steals cash from victim

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Police are looking for a man accused of theft and impersonating an officer. The incident happened Sunday morning at about 11:30 a.m. in the area of Gholson Rd. and Herring.

The suspect, driving an early 80s model white pick-up truck with chipped paint, indicated to the victim to pull over as if he were a police officer. The victim stopped his vehicle at Herring and University Parks Dr. believing he was being stopped by an officer even though the white pick-up had no flashing lights.

Police say the suspect approached the victim's vehicle and told him he stopped him for speeding. During the exchange, the victim never saw a badge or weapon, but believed that the suspect was an officer.

The suspect asked for the victim's drivers license and looked through the victim's wallet. Police say during this time the suspect may have taken money from the wallet, and then told the victim to follow him to the police station to conduct a records check.

The victim started following the suspect truck, but lost him in traffic. The victim then drove to the police department where he met with an on-duty patrol officer and told him what happened.

The suspect is described as a 20 to 30-year-old white male. He is 5-foot-10 in height and weighs 200 pounds. He was last seen wearing khaki pants and a green shirt.

Waco police say they do have low profile vehicles, but the vehicles have extremely noticeable red and blue lighting and some low profile markings. They suggest that anyone being stopped in suspiciously should call 911 to notify dispatchers.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Waco Police Department or Crime Stoppers.
