||Man Arrested for Impersonating Police Officer
||03/12/2010 / 1600 hours
||300 block of Vanderbilt Drive, Oxnard
||Brian Faber, 25 years, of Oxnard
||Black 2003 Toyota pick-up
||Officer Jon Ballow
On 1622 hours, Oxnard police received a call of a subject driving a black pick-up equipped with flashing red and blue lights and a siren in the 300 block of Vanderbilt Drive. The caller reported the pick-up driver attempted to conduct a traffic stop on the caller’s vehicle by illuminating the red and blue lights and sounding the siren. The caller believed the pick-up was an undercover police vehicle so he pulled to the right and stopped. The driver of the pick-up did not make direct contact with the caller but slowly passed by the caller’s vehicle.
Oxnard police located the black pick-up parked in the area. Officers could see the red and blue lights mounted in the cab of the pick-up. The vehicle was impounded as part of the investigation.
At 2037 hours, the owner of the pick-up, Brian Faber, contacted police to determine the whereabouts of his truck. After interviewing Mr. Faber, he was arrested without incident for impersonating a police officer.
A subsequent search of the vehicle recovered emergency vehicle equipment (red and blue lights and a siren) along with several hundred rounds of ammunition.
“Offenses like this are not taken lightly,” said Officer Jon Ballow of the Oxnard Police Department. “We are very concerned about the ultimate intent of someone driving around with their personal vehicle equipped with red lights and a siren.”
Faber was booked into the Ventura County Jail on misdemeanor charges of impersonating a police officer.
