Naperville Police Search For Fake Cop

NAPERVILLE, Ill. (CBS) — Police in Naperville are looking for a man who pretended to be a member of their force and pulled over a woman.

Around 9:30 p.m. Thursday, a woman driving by herself was stopped by a white car with red and white flashing lights near the intersection of Wolf’s Crossing Road and 248th Street in Naperville, according to Naperville police.

After she was pulled over, the woman was approached by a man in his 30s, wearing a blue or black uniform with a hat, who made sexual comments toward her.

“He asked the woman for identification and made some sexually suggestive comments as to how she could get out of the ticket,” Naperville Police Sgt. Greg Bell said, adding that it was unclear whether the man had a weapon.

The woman was not harmed. She drove away from the scene and was not followed.

It was determined that no officer from the Naperville or Aurora police departments or the Will County Sheriff’s Office documented a traffic stop at that time or location.

The man was described as having a slender build and very short hair. He was seen driving a passenger car with no police markings.

Anyone who may have witnessed the traffic stop or was in the area of Wolf’s Crossing Road and 248th Street at that time is encouraged to call police at (630) 420-6726.

Naperville Police routinely use unmarked cars for traffic enforcement, the release said. Anyone who feels uncomfortable during an encounter can drive away with their hazard lights on and call 911 and ask the dispatcher to confirm whether the traffic stop is legitimate.

    The real cops do the same thing. My daughter was bruised and beaten by a Naperville cop.

    This should read if you feel uncomfortable about a stop…you should not wait for the encounter to call 911, you should do it as soon as you see lights pulling you over.

    If I were you people putting Naperville officers down, I would hate to see one have to help you when you’re in trouble. Would you have the guts to ask for help??????

    How did the hat make sexual comments towards her? Was it a talking hat?

    The only citizens who have a bad impression of law enforcement are the people who break the law and are afraid of the repercussions.

    If ever in doubt during a traffic stop, find a very public place, pull in/over, do not leave your vehicle, turn on dome light, hands on the wheel, wait for instructions by the uniformed or badged officer. Only Bolingbrook has/had fake Police, Drew Peterson comes to mind for one. Or just flee at high speed and then take her into the river, swim and escape.

    Always keep a rock or brick in your car. If you’re pulled over, beat yourself senseless with the rock & then throw it out the window. If the cop is fake & has pulled you over to sexually attack you, he won’t have any interest in you after that, and if it is a real cop, you can claim Police brutality & collect millions from a law suit. Pretty smart, huh?

    Naperville Polcie are very respectable. Lot’s of lies that I read above from viewers. People are only bruised and beaten if they resist and fight and being a complete jack wagon to the officers. In that case, they deserve a butt kicking!

  • FR

    No one should ever stop for an unmarked car. Un marked cars should only be used for surveilence.
