TEANECK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — He had a gun, flashing lights on his car and claimed to be a cop, but real police in Bergen County said the man was a phony. The suspect allegedly pulled a woman over with blue flashing lights and had a gun on his hip.It happened last Saturday around 11 a.m. on River Road and Deerbord Street. The woman knew something just wasn’t right. Police said the lights were the first giveaway. A vehicle with only blue flashing lights is not an official police officer.
“He got out of his vehicle and approached her car, identified himself as a detective, and said that she was speeding,” said Teaneck police Detective Lt. Andrew McGurr… The quick-thinking woman took off, and police said she did the right thing.
“Our officers know what to do, that they are to identify themselves and if someone has a problem with that they will request a marked unit to respond to the location,” McGurr said.
