Claims false about fake highway patrol officer


Recent reports of someone impersonating a police officer in the North Okanagan are - unfounded.

Motorists in the Lumby area came forward last month with complaints of what was believed to be a man - faking to be a member of the RCMP.

An investigation reveals that in all four cases, the traffic stops were carried out by a uniformed highway patrol officer. 

The police officer was on-duty, dressed in full uniform and operating a fully equipped unmarked white Chevrolet Tahoe.
