Tyler Police are currently looking for a woman who allegedly impersonated an officer, and robbed a man.
The incident happened  just after 8 Sunday night, at a car wash on the 5000 block of Highway 31 West.

Police tell Fox 51, a man was approached by a female claiming to be a police officer.

The victim stated that an unknown white female with short brown hair, possibly in her 40’s, approximately 5’5” and 130 pounds, approached him as he was parked near the car vacuums.

She presented a badge that led him to believe that she was a police officer.  She informed him that she was going to search his car or he was going to be arrested.  After searching his car, she stole a few unknown items from him.  She then left in a dark colored compact vehicle.  There is no other information available at this time.

Anyone with information about the suspects involved in this crime is urged to contact the Tyler Police Department.
