Two pulled over in Pueblo by fake cops

Not once, but twice, a man impersonating a cop tries to pull people over in Pueblo.

It happened on December 1.

Police say all the man did was flash his headlights to mimic when a cop's headlights flash, but other times this has happened, people buy blue flashing lights to trick drivers.

"All of our officers will get on the radio and notify dispatch if they're stopping a vehicle, so the dispatch will know if that's in fact an officer doing it," said Sgt. Eric Gonzales, Pueblo Police Public Information Officer.

If you don't have a cell phone try to drive to the police station, a fire station, or a convenience store which would have a surveillance camera.

These two specific incidents this past weekend happened on Northern and Santa Fe Avenue.
