Sacramento police report a motorist was pulled over by apparent jokesters pretending to be officers on patrol in the Robla area.
Shortly before 10 p.m. Monday, a motorist in the 4300 block of Pell Drive pulled to the side of the road. The motorist pulled over because behind him was a black and white Ford Crown Victoria with small red and blue lights shining.
The law enforcement version of the Crown Victoria has long been preferred by police departments before its discontinuance by Ford.
When the motorist was ordered out his vehicle, he realized the two people in the black and white car were not officers because they started laughing. He left the area and phoned the real police.
Officers later found a vehicle matching the description of the Crown Victoria used in the incident. However, the motorist duped by the pranksters could not be contacted to assist in identification of the Crown Vic driver, police said.
An investigation continues.
