Alberta RCMP are hoping to identify a man who allegedly pretended to be a police officer while visiting a mall north of Calgary earlier this month.
According to police, the man entered a store at CrossIron Mills on Feb. 14, at which time he identified himself to an employee as a Calgary Police Service officer.
In a Wednesday news release, RCMP said the man said his name was Jason Stuart and gave the store employee a police badge number.
However, RCMP said the badge number was “false” and CPS confirmed he wasn’t an officer.
He is described as being approximately five-foot-nine-inches tall, weighing 185 pounds with sandy blond hair and black glasses. RCMP said he was wearing tan-coloured dress shoes, navy pants and a patterned button-down shirt with a sport coat.
