Springfield Police Seek Man Claiming to be Undercover Officer
On the evening of Wednesday, June 21st, a teenage girl contacted the Springfield Police Department to report that a suspicious male had exited his vehicle and gotten out to speak with her while she was walking alone along South Street at approximately 7:00 p.m. that evening. The man reportedly flashed an identification card that said "Springfield Police Department" on it, and he identified himself as an undercover officer. The man reportedly asked the girl to show him that she was not in possession of drugs. The man then got back into his car and drove off, headed southbound on South Street.
The description of the man was as follows: white, 6'1", thin, 30s, clean shaven, short and very curly black hair, raspy voice, camouflage shorts, black tank top, and black shoes.
The man reportedly smelled as though he had smoked marijuana, the release reported. The man was said to be driving a black or brown Vermont registered Subaru stationwagon with tinted windows and an antenna on top.
If anyone has any information as to the identity of this person, they are asked to contact Sergeant Gregory Molgano at 802-885-2113. The public should be aware that no such individual is employed as an officer by the Town of Springfield.
