Troopers Investigate Police Impersonation Incident Near Seaford

Posted: Updated:
SEAFORD, Del.- Delaware State Police are investigating an incident in which a male suspect impersonated a police officer after conducting a vehicle stop on Coverdale Road near Seaford.

Police say the incident occurred at around 10:45 p.m. Monday as a female motorist was traveling on Coverdale Road in the area of Hastings Farm Road when the suspect vehicle began to follow close behind.

Police describe the suspect as a light skinned black male operating a large four door sedan.
