A second incident of police impersonation in the region has prompted RCMP to warn residents to keep an eye out for the suspect vehicle, according to Trail RCMP commanding officer Sgt. Mike Wicentowich

In the early morning hours of March 26, Trail RCMP received a report from a motorist who saw a white pick up truck traveling west on Highway 3B activate red and blue lights in the front grill of the truck. The motorist was travelling east towards Trail, BC and was passed by the truck going the opposite direction and noted it did not look like a typical police vehicle. 

Trail RCMP officers searched the area on the highway as well as surrounding areas near Trail and were unable to find a vehicle that matched the description.

“Although the truck did not turn around and follow the motorist in this case, there have been reports of similar incidents recently in other nearby areas and we are asking the public for their assistance in identifying this vehicle,” said Wicentowich.

Trail RCMP continue to investigate and are asking the public if they have any information on this vehicle or have seen or experienced anything similar to please call them at: 250-364-2566.
