**ATTENTION**

This morning around 9:00am a suspicious incident was reported of an older black/dark colored Crown Victoria vehicle that attempted to pull someone over on Monte Vista Avenue. The citizen who reported the incident said that the Crown Victoria had a spotlight and was trying to pull them over, but drove off after the citizen pulled over. This vehicle was not a Turlock Police vehicle.

Over the past few weeks, in the Merced area, similar incidents have been reported of suspicious persons impersonating police officers in old black/dark Crown Victoria vehicles. They have been trying to pull over solo female drivers. We are unsure if our incident is related to these.

If you are being pulled by a vehicle that does not look like a traditional marked police vehicle and you think it’s not a police officer, call 911 and DO NOT pull over until you are at a safe, well lit, public place.
