Police search for man accused of impersonating a law enforcement official

Shreveport Police are searching for a man who falsely identified himself as a law enforcement official following a traffic incident in north Shreveport.

On September 26, 2018, the victim advised that he was travelling along the 1300 block of North Market Street when he was flagged over by a black Dodge pickup. The white male driver of the vehicle exited and made contact with the driver advising him that he was a law enforcement officer and that the victim had cut him off. The white male suspect then pretended to check the victim for warrants. There was at least one other person in the suspect’s black truck. Following the encounter, the suspect got back into his truck and fled the scene.

Detectives are asking anyone with identifying information to contact the Shreveport Police Department at 318-673-6955.
