Police seek man who posed as officer in Green Township

| Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2010

A man posing as a law enforcement officer arrived at an Indiana County home and threatened to charge a resident with a crime, state police in Indiana County reported Tuesday.

The man went to a Mulberry Road home in Green Township about 9:45 p.m. Oct. 1 and told the 42-year-old female there that he was a police officer and was going to charge her with an unknown violation, police said. The suspect, described as a 6-foot-tall white male in his mid- to late 40s, then left the area.

The victim contacted state police and discovered that the man was not a police officer.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact state police at 724-357-1960.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
