MILTON — The Milton Police Department is looking for a police officer imposter who pulled someone over and said the victim had disobeyed the Safer at Home order.

The suspect pulled over a Milton citizen on Wednesday and asked them why they were out driving given the current Safer at Home order.

The "officer" asked for the citizen's drivers license. Following their short conversation, the suspect gave the ID back and told the citizen to go straight home.

According to police, the suspect was driving a white car, similar to a Ford Crown Victoria. There was a spotlight on the car along with red and blue lights on the dashboard. There was also blue or black stripping or lettering on the body of the car.

This suspect was a white male with a thing build and no facial hair. He was between 5'9" and 6-feet tall and was wearing a police style 6-point hat. He dressed in dark clothing with a silver badge on his shirt and a pair of handcuffs hanging from his shoulder.

If you have any information regarding this suspect or the incident, please contact Milton Police at 608-757-2244 or call Crime Stoppers at 608-756-3636.

It is also important to remind Wisconsinites that Wisconsin police departments will not pull you over just to ask where you're going during the Safer at Home order.
