HEMPFIELD TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Police are searching for whoever is impersonating a police officer in Westmoreland County. State police said the fake officer pulled over a man on Route 30 in Hempfield Township early Saturday morning.
Police said the man, who said he was Jeannette police officer, had a siren in his car and asked the victim for his keys before driving away.
Police said the impersonator was driving a white, newer-model Chevy Suburban with tinted windows.
The man was described as white, in his 30s with light brown hair. He was wearing a tan shirt and jeans, police said.
According to police, the impersonator told the victim he was pulled over because he was driving erratically. He then asked the victim, a 39-year-old man from Westmoreland County, if he had a firearm in the car.
Police said the answer the victim gave might have saved him from serious harm.
"He told this person he had a weapon, had a permit to carry the weapon," said Jeanne Martin of the Pennsylvania State Police. "When the person heard that, they left the scene immediately."
Anyone with information is asked to contact authorities.
