TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Twin Falls Police look for a man who impersonated a police officer earlier in the week.
According to a news release, police said the man approached a female in a business parking lot and demanded she exit her vehicle.
Police say the suspect is a white man with a dark mole on his face. He was last seen wearing the police-style uniform with a flag on the sleeve and a star-shaped badge on the right side of his shirt.
Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is encouraged to contact the Twin Falls Police Department at 208-735-4357.
In the news release, police offered tips on what to do look for in a uniformed officer:
• “Police agencies in the Magic Valley have distinct uniforms with identifying arm patches and badges. Most have a name tag or a name sewn on the front of the uniform.
• “Officers of the Twin Falls Police Department are required to identify themselves as police officers and provide their names.
• “Trust your instincts. If they do not 'seem' to be real police officers, ask to contact the Emergency Dispatch Center at 208-735-4357 to confirm their identity. You may also request that a marked patrol unit respond.”
