(TOPEKA, Kan.) — The Kansas Highway Patrol is warning drivers to be aware of an imposter. Emergency officials tell us someone is pretending to be a KHP trooper.
Officials tell us the impersonator pulled over a driver on K-42 in Kingman County. The suspect handcuffed the driver, searched the car and stole a pocket knife.
He never gave a reason for the stop.
He was wearing a dark navy uniform, but didn't give his name or badge number. Troopers tell us they will always have a badge of office on their shirt along with a nametag.If you question whether you're talking to a real trooper, call *47 from your cell phone to talk with dispatchers.
