Springfield Police are reporting another case of police impersonation, but it’s likely unrelated to the string of similar instances a few months ago.
Authorities say a 19 year old man was stopped on Sangamon Avenue near Piper Road around 9:30 Monday night by an off-white Ford Crown-Victoria with one headlight brighter than the other, an uneven bumper and no front license plate. The suspect was a bi-racial man in his early 20’s, who asked the victim for license and registration. He said he didn’t have any identification on him and he was undercover.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
