SHERMAN, Tex. -- Authorities in Sherman are looking into yet another report of a police impersonator after a Sherman man says he was pulled over by someone who claimed to be the police.

The incident happened on Saturday. Police say a man reported a red late 90's model Chevrolet Camaro pulled him over in the 100 block of Archer Street. The man said there were flashing red and white lights in the front windows.

The victim never saw the driver. He told police when he pulled over, the Camaro sped away.

This is just the latest in several reports of local police impersonators in the last month.

    i "think" by law that volunteer emergency vehicles are only allowed to have red or white lights, and no sirens. but fyi if they run lights and they hit someone, that they are not covered by their insurance. unless they have a certain ins policy.

    Sounds like some punk kids pulling a prank. Or it could be "Angie" from Bonham doing another type of impersonation.

    Sounds like an "emergency vehicle impersonator to me" alot of vol. firemen have emergency lights in their cars. Not saying thats what it was, just a fact.

    How does this person know it was a "police impersonator?" If he never saw the person and the person did not identify himself/herself as an officer then he/she could have been crying wolf. We have 20 fire departments within this county alone and almost all of them have someone with lights installed in there personal cars/trucks. Don't start crying wolf just to get the community worrying until you are sure this was a police impersonator.

    The only way to be safe is to only allow identifiable police vehicles to pull people over. I understand the need for undercover vehicles, but not for routine traffic stops. There always seems to be an unmarked car for sale at the car wash by Archer Drive. This should stop, or the car should be altered BEFORE the sale. Who are people supposed to trust?

    I want to write this in addendum .I have grandchildren and this impersonator really worries me.If someone is out there playig cop he could flash a badge to a child and tell them to get in the car,I've seen Clint Eastwoods "Mystic River " and this happened in Florida a few years ago to a young girl.It was caught on a security camera as the man grabbed the girls arm,it was the last image of her alive and she died in a horrible way. I really dont see the point of a trial for such an animal.But to the point I hope this station keeps us informed on this story and parents warn your children be frank and tell them before they go out the door of strangers. Its a different world than most us were raised in.protect their little lives because there are some really sick people out there

    I am told that with the law now allowing confiscation of drug dealers assets {cars,homes ,etc} it adds to the tools to fight crime.Hence a red Camaro. About 8 years ago I was pulled over in The Colony by police driving a black 2 door Grand Prix .It looked more like a sports car except for the lights in the grill.And my sister was pulled over out by Locust store by the sheriffs dept,driving a Ford X-cab dually, in a way its a good thing they have that flexability but it makes one wonder about the bad or suspicious situation and for a female at night you are scared and may put your life in jeopardy. The police dont want to give up this tactic but they must understnd why a person is reluctant to stop especially late at nightThe bad guys know this and take advantage of it.Serial killer Ted Bundy was one and several lives were lost before police caught on. Its a terrifying problem and those who do it must be dealt with severly when caught,
