Impersonating a Police Officer Case in Barrington: 17-Year-Old Female Pulled Over


Barrington police are searching for man who allegedly pulled over a 17-year-old female on 20th Street just west of the Foundry Shopping in Barrington. A man driving a dark blue or black four-door sedan activated a flashing light about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday and the girl pulled over. The girl gave the man her driver’s license after saying he stopped her for speeding. He also asked her where she worked and where she went to school. He asked her to get out of the car, which she refused. She then asked if she could leave, which he replied, “Yes.”

The man was described as male/white 5’6″ to 5’11” with broad shoulders and narrow waist. While stopped the man, turned off his vehicle’s lights, which is not standard operating procedure for a police traffic stop.

Police recommend alway pulling over in a well lit area when being stopped by a police car that looks suspicious, and even calling 9-1-1 before pulling over for the vehicle.
