A Parkville man was arrested and charged with impersonating a police officer in Towson on Sept. 3, according to Baltimore County police.
Jeffery Pianowski, 41, of the 2700 block of Burridge Road, has been charged with impersonating an officer and is currently being held on $150,000 bail, according to a police news release.
Officers responded to the 7-Eleven in the 8600 block of Pleasant Plains Road after a 911 caller said a man, who actually worked at an area car dealership, was identifying himself as a police officer.
At the scene the officers found Pianowski who was allegedly wearing a polo shirt that read "police" on the back and a badge around his neck.
According to police, he was also wearing a holster on his hip carrying an air pistol and driving a silver Chevrolet Impala.
Police also allegedly found handcuffs, badges and firearms in Pianowski’s car and home.
So far police have been able to locate one resident who accused Pianowski of trying to pull him over, and are asking anyone else who may have been a victim to call (410) 307-2020.
