Police search for man impersonating a Rowlett officer

Police are looking for a man believed to be impersonating a Rowlett police officer.

At approximately 12 p.m. Tuesday, Irving police responded to the 4000 block of North Beltline Road on a suspicious circumstance call.

A female victim reported that she had been pulled over and approached by a man who appeared to be a Rowlett police officer.

"He looked and acted like a legit police officer," said Brittany Williams.

The man immediately told the victim to get out of her car because he had warrants for her arrest.

The woman quickly called Irving Police dispatch and when she told the man she had them on the phone, he went back to his car and drove off.

The suspect is described as a white male between 25 and 30 years old with short brown hair and brown eyes. He appeared to be wearing a full police style uniform bearing the word "Rowlett."

The suspect was also driving a vehicle in deceptively similar fashion to a legitimate Rowlett Police Department vehicle. The vehicle is described as a black Dodge Charger with white doors bearing the word "Rowlett."

Detectives have confirmed that the suspect is not a Rowlett departmental employee and it is not an official police vehicle.

Anyone who has information about this suspect is asked to contact the Irving Police Department at (972) 273-1010.
