Police Blotter: Possible police impersonator reported
A juvenile male reported being pulled over by an individual impersonating a police officer Monday night near the 900 block of Fourth Ave East.
The young man said he was driving when a black Dodge Charger -- the same model driven by some Dickinson Police Department officials -- flashed its lights behind him. Thinking it was a police officer, he pulled over and an individual wearing what he thought was a police uniform approached his car.
He said in his report that the man driving the Dodge Charger looked at the youth’s driver’s license, returned it, and left without issuing any paperwork.
“Just FYI,” Dickinson Police Sgt. Kylan Klauzer said. “If someone flashes their headlights behind you, don’t pull over.”
More downtown vandalism, property damage reported
Two more reports of vandalism along Villard were reported Monday, this time at Dacotah Bank and Border Resources.
The incidents most likely happened over the weekend, which saw a string of property damage and graffiti at businesses in the downtown area.
“I’m going to bet these are going to be related as well,” Dickinson Police Sgt. Kylan Klauzer said.
