Eskilstuna

Four suspected of pretending to be police

Police in Eskilstuna west of Stockholm confiscated a fake police car on Saturday night and suspect four individuals of pretending to be police officers, reports Swedish Radio news.

Dennis Nordberg, an Eskilstuna police investigator, says the car was painted like a police car so that any bystander would think it was real.

Police say four people in their 20s stopped a person who was on the way home from the store. That person filed the police complaint after realizing the individuals were not police officers.

The four individuals are suspected of impersonating a public official.

”It’s not optimal that people go around that aren’t police and try to suggest they’re police,” says Nordberg. “It can have pretty tragic consequences.”
