In April, Pomona police investigated a residential burglary in the Ganesha Hills neighborhood where several items were taken. The suspect was observed leaving the property with the loot, and the victim told officers that he recognized the suspect.

Sgt. Brandon Powell was driving west on U.S. 60 near Lindsay Road when he saw an SUV involved in a traffic stop on a car. Powell noticed the SUV had blue-and-red strobe lights and thought it was an unmarked law-enforcement vehicle, DPS said in a statement.

Chicago Police Officer Arrested For ‘Inappropriate Physical Contact’ With Three Women

Chicago Police Officer Arrested For ‘Inappropriate Physical Contact’ With Three Women A Chicago police officer has been arrested on charges he "made inappropriate physical contact" with three women while on duty on three different times between August 2017 and July 2018. Officer Corey Deanes, 47, has been charged with one felony count of aggravated battery, two misdemeanor counts of battery, and three felony counts of official misconduct. Police said, while on duty between Aug. 28, 2017, and July 13, 2018, Deanes “made inappropiate physical contact with three women on three separate occasions without their consent.” Police did not elaborate on Deanes’ actions.

Powell questioning the driver and found that Hillman was not a law-enforcement officer and was not affiliated with the Mesa Police Department, DPS said.

Hillman told Powell he stopped the car because the vehicle cut him off. He said he has used the red-and-blue lights in the past when contacting stranded motorists, DPS said.

Hillman was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of impersonating a police officer and three counts of kidnapping.

Authorities say Hillman may have stopped other vehicles under similar circumstances. They are asking anyone who had contact with him to call DPS at 877-272-8329.

This is not the first officer impersonation in the state in recent years.

In January 2018, a man was accused of impersonating an undercover Tucson police officer and stopping at least four people, one of whom he handcuffed. He used a dash cam to film his stops.

In May 2017, police said a man impersonating an officer handcuffed a driver and placed her into the back of his vehicle during a "traffic stop" in Tucson.
