At approximately 10 a.m., on June 15, a white male wearing a law enforcement-style uniform driving a vehicle described as a black Dodge Charger with police markings with emergency lights inside the vehicle stopped a citizen on Missouri Highway 6 near Gallatin, in Daviess County. The individual represented himself as a law enforcement officer and issued the citizen citations from New York state, according to a press release from the Missouri State Highway Patrol. There was an unknown make, white cargo-style van driving in front of the citizen’s vehicle that may have been working in conjunction with the individual posing as a law enforcement officer.
