SPICER, Minn. - Authorities are warning the community to be on alert for a man posing as a police officer in Kandiyohi County.
According to the sheriff's office, the mother of a female juvenile called police to report that her daughter had been pulled over by a man claiming to be a law enforcement officer on Highway 23, near Spicer.
The man said he pulled her over because he noticed her New London-Spicer High School parking pass and that all vehicles with those parking passes were being stopped due to the threat of homecoming pranks often seen at this time of year.
The man then asked to search the girl's vehicle.
He is described as a white man, with no facial hair, about 6-feet tall with an average build. He was wearing dark-colored cargo pants, a light button-down short-sleeved shirt with a sewn-on emblem and a law enforcement type of duty belt.
The man was dressed like a deputy sheriff and was driving a vehicle that had red and blue lights in the grill.
If anyone has information about the incident or similar situations, they are asked to contact the Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office at 320-214-6700.
The Kandiyohi County Sheriff's Office reminds motorists that they can ask to see the officer's identification after being pulled over.
