Shenango Township police impersonator sought

NEW CASTLE — Shenango Township police are seeking someone who was impersonating a law enforcement officer.

Police said an East Side resident reported he had been stopped by a vehicle Wednesday evening on East Washington Street.

He described the vehicle as a tan Chevrolet Blazer, and said its driver began flashing his fog lights behind him.

The man pulled his vehicle over, he said, and a man got out of the Blazer, identified himself as a police officer and accused the victim of speeding.

The victim told police he asked to see the person’s identification. The suspect then returned to his vehicle and drove off toward New Castle.

Anyone with information about the incident is being asked to contact Shenango Township police at (724) 654-2243.
