Man Impersonates Police Officer In Daviess County

The Missouri State Highway Patrol and Daviess County Sheriffs Office are needing the public’s help in identifying a subject impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer. According to a press release, at approximately 10 a.m. on June 15th, a white male wearing a law enforcement-style uniform driving a vehicle described as a black Dodge Charger with police markings with emergency lights inside the vehicle stopped a citizen on Missouri Highway 6 near Gallatin, in Daviess County. The individual represented himself as a law enforcement officer and issued the citizen citations from New York state. There was an unknown make, white cargo-style van driving in front of the citizen’s vehicle that may have been working in conjunction with the individual posing as a law enforcement officer. If anyone has information relevant to this investigation, they should contact the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office at (660) 663-2031.
