GRANDE PRAIRIE, A.B. – Grande Prairie RCMP have issued a warning after a member of the public was pulled over and stopped by a vehicle that was flashing blue and red lights and a siren behind her on Highway 2 near Webster Road.

On Thursday, January 7th, 2016 at approximately 11:30 p.m., RCMP received a complaint from a female who reported that a male in an unknown unmarked police vehicle activated its lights and sirens and conducted a traffic stop with her on Highway 2. The unknown male, who was not wearing a uniform, requested her documentation and asked her to exit her vehicle, saying, “it was cold outside”. The male did not provide a badge number or his name. The female drove way and was unharmed.

The male is described as Caucasian, tall with medium length hair. He was unshaven and unkept, wearing a heavy-duty work coat with black pants. It is believed he was driving an SUV.
