Police say the accused was dressed in clothing that resembled a tactical officer and several policing items were observed inside the vehicle.

The officer arrested and charged a 33-year-old Wallaceburg man with impersonating a peace officer.

He has been released and will appear in a Goderich court Aug. 17.
