West Sacramento police warn of driver of Mustang possibly posing as police officer

West Sacramento police are seeking information regarding an individual who may be impersonating a police officer.

The department received a report Sunday regarding someone driving a red mid-2000 model Ford Mustang with a red and blue flashing light and siren. The driver of the vehicle stopped a woman in the area of Promenade Street and Southport Parkway using a siren and flashing lights, according to a Police Department news release.

Police ask that anyone with information regarding the vehicle call police dispatch at (916) 375-6474 or Detective Eric Palmer at (916) 617-4935.

If anyone is stopped by a vehicle and is uncertain whether it is a police vehicle, the motorist may proceed slowly to a well-lighted public location while calling police dispatch, officials said.
