January 04, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Maryland State Police in Westminster said they are looking for a man who they believe may be impersonating a police officer in the Route 30 area.

A man in a dark-colored, two-door hatchback with a red and blue emergency light pulled over a motorist on Route 91 near Route 30 and took his driver's license Dec. 21, police said. Early Friday, a motorist on Carrollton Road near Houck Road was pulled over by a car with a siren and red and blue strobe light. The suspect drove away when the motorist got out of his vehicle.

Police describe the suspect in the first incident as white, with blond hair, about 5 feet, 8 inches tall, weighing about 160 pounds. He was wearing khaki pants and a dark-colored beige jacket with what appeared to be a police badge.

Anyone with any information on these incidents, should call the Westminster barracks at 410-386-3000.
