TURLOCK (CBS13) – Police have arrested two men suspected of impersonating a police officer in Turlock.
Turlock police say they got a 911 call Thursday night about a Toyota Prius equipped with red and blue lights. The car had tried to pull the caller over, but the caller got suspicious and alerted police.
Officers soon responded to the area of Countryside Drive and W. Monte Vista Avenue to look for the suspicious car. Two hours later, an officer on patrol spotted the car and pulled it over.
Two young men, 20-year-old Saul Rodriguez and 18-year-old Michael Reynolds, were inside the car and were soon arrested.
Red and blue emergency lighting were found in the car, police say.
Both Rodriguez and Reynolds are facing charges of impersonating a police officer.
A similar incident happened in Ceres this week, where a woman reported a suspicious car tried to pull her over. The suspect car was not located in that incident, but it’s unclear if the arrests in Turlock is related.
