The Spring Hill Police Department posted pictures of the car believed to be driven by a person who impersonated an officer and vandalized a gate, asking the public for help finding them.
According to police, a male subject approached a person in the Target parking lot Thursday morning claiming to be a police officer.
A release from Spring Hill Police states the impersonated officer told the person they fit the description of a robbery suspect, and asked for the person’s driver’s license.
The man did not display any police badge, ID or insignia.
Police later posted images of a person that damaged the security fence around the water tower at Hardin’s Landing.
Police said the suspected vandal and the car matched the description of the suspected officer impersonation.
The vandalism also occured on Thursday, two hours after the incident at Target.
Police described the suspect as an Asian America male, standing between 5 foot 7 inches and 5 foot 9 inches tall. He was wearing black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt and a black shirt. Police say he had a frackle on his left cheek near his eye.
The car is described as a newer-model Ford Focus hatchback.
Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to contact Spring Hill Police at 931-486-2632.
