The Kent County Sheriff’s Department along with the Grand Rapids Police Department, Wyoming Police Department and the Grandville Police Departments are investigating a series of police impersonation complaints that occurred starting last week. Since March 7, area police agencies have taken five separate complaints of a female police impersonator approaching people in both parking lots and at an apartment complex identifying herself as a detective, showing them a gold badge of some sort and requesting to speak to them about their involvement in various crimes.
The female has been working in coordination with an unknown male subject who she contacts via cellular telephone, who also identifies himself as a law enforcement official and questions the victim. Both subjects then request permission to search the victim’s home and at least two victims have allowed the female suspect to do so.
There is limited information on the suspects, but the female is described as a black female, approximately 5-feet 4-inches to 5-feet 6-inches, 120-125 pounds, slim build, long dark shoulder length hair, wearing professional style clothing. An unknown white vehicle was also seen in the area of female on at least two separate occasions.
KCSD and GRPD were able to obtain composites of the female suspect and photos of a male person of interest who was seen contacting the female in the 3400 block of Plainfield Ave.
KCSD is requesting anyone with any additional information reference these complaints contact your local police agency to file a report or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.
