Fake police officer sought in Charles
Authorities in Charles County are searching for an armed man who, posing as a police officer, stopped a car in the Bryans Road area of the county Tuesday and ordered the driver to step out.
The man, in a Mercury Grand Marquis, used a flashing red light in the car to stop a motorist on Metropolitan Church Road about 7:30 a.m., authorities said.
The driver later said that the man was wearing a tan suit and had a holstered handgun on his waist. The man said he had stopped the driver for speeding.
After ordering the driver to step out of his car, authorities said, the man began searching the vehicle, asking if any drugs were in the car.
When the driver became suspicious and asked the man for his identification, the man told
the driver he could leave, authorities said.
