The cavalry warns the public to beware of drivers impersonating police on the streets.
Shortly after 11 a.m. on Thursday, the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP received a complaint from a driver who was reportedly being chased for several miles by what appeared to be a police vehicle, Mounties said in a news release on Friday. The suspicious vehicle was traveling north from Highway 15 to Highway 28A in Sturgeon County, a few miles northeast of Edmonton.
The driver described the car as a blue Crown Victoria with “substandard paint”, a light bar on top, and alternating lights on the front grille. The Hand was not convinced it was a regular police vehicle, Mounties added.
The cavalry will ask anyone being chased by what they believe to be a simulated emergency vehicle to contact the nearest police station or call 911.
The RCMP is investigating this incident and anyone with relevant information is asked to call the Fort Saskatchewan Detachment at 780-997-7900. Tippers who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit tips online at www.p3tips.com.
