A man has been arrested in west Norfolk for impersonating a police officer after he was found to have added blue lights to his car.
He was also found with an offensive weapon yesterday (February 2) in Three Holes around 2.10pm. He was taken to King’s Lynn Police Investigation Centre for questioning.
Police have not commented on his intentions and are investigating the incident.
The arrest follows a similar incident in south Norfolk last week.
A woman was driving along Kenninghall Road on when a car with blue flashing lights pulled up behind her.
The male driver of the car then approached her passenger door and gestured to her to put her window down. He then asked her to get out of the car but the woman refused as she did not feel comfortable and agreed to get out of the car in a well-lit are of East Harling.
But the man never met her and officers later told the woman the driver was not a policeman.
