Grove City Dealing with Second Fake Cop Case
GROVE CITY (Adam Slinger) A man dressed in law enforcement clothing, knocked on the door of a Grove City home late in the evening, flashed a badge and asked for the whereabouts of a woman who no longer lived there.
The homeowner on the other side of the door did not open it and instead, she called Grove City police back on October 21.
He showed me a badge through the window and an ID, but I couldnt see the ID through the window, the caller told the operator.
The man, who was dressed in an agent jacket, left before the real police arrived on scene near London-Groveport Road and Jackson Pike.
Sgt. Rick Hardy told ABC6/FOX28 that if youre ever unsure about someone claiming to be an officer, call police and the dispatchers will be able to tell you if that person is legitimate.
If youre asking questions and youre tripping them up, theyre not who they say they are, Hardy said.
Earlier this month, another man was arrested in Toledo after impersonating an officer in Grove City.
