Local police are again warning of a man impersonating an officer, after a third incident on Tuesday in Upper Saucon Township.

Authorities released a sketch earlier this year of a man wanted for pulling two people over in separate incidents in January — one in South Whitehall Township and the other in Lower Saucon Township.

Upper Saucon police said a man matching that same description pulled over a driver Tuesday night on Landis Mill Road.

The “cop” was driving an older model black Ford Crown Victoria with red and blue overhead lights, township police said. The impersonator had a beard, was approximately 6 feet tall and weighed between 200 to 215 pounds.

The witness reported the man was wearing a black shirt with “Police” in small white letters on the left chest area and “Police” in large white letters on the back of the shirt.

When asked for his name and badge number, the alleged impersonator ran back to his vehicle and fled. 

In the Lower Saucon Township incident, police said the impersonator was driving a white, unmarked SUV with a red and blue emergency light on the dash and a Pennsylvania license plate.

In South Whitehall, police said the impersonator had what appeared to be a police badge, and was driving a black, unmarked vehicle with tinted windows and red-and-blue emergency lights on the front dashboard.

Anyone with information on any of the incidents is asked to call South Whitehall police at 610-398-0337 or Lower Saucon police at 610-317-6110.
