Ontario Provincial Police say a Prince Edward County man is charged with personating a peace officer after a motorist complained they were pulled over in a vehicle using red and blue flashing lights in Trenton.

Police responded to a complaint on Dundas Street West at approximately 6:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say someone reported being pulled over in their vehicle by a male in a red vehicle using flashing red and blue lights.

"After a brief verbal exchange between the complainant and the suspect, the suspect left in their vehicle last seen on Front Street," said the OPP in a statement on Thursday.

"The accused was located by officers where they were arrested for personating a peace officer."

Red and blue flashing lights were seized following a search of the vehicle.

A 40-year-old from Prince Edward County faces several charges, including personating a peace officer and unauthorized use of red and blue lights under the Highway Traffic Act.
