Boys accused of impersonating officers
• Two 17-year-old boys were arrested at 27 and H roads Saturday on suspicion they impersonated police officers and harassed two girls in another vehicle.
According to Grand Junction Police Department Sgt. Dave Stassen, two 17-year-old girls were leaving the desert north of Grand Junction in a pickup around 11 p.m. Friday and were pulled over by the two 17-year-old boys, who were in a pickup with flashing strobe lights on top of it.
Stassen said the girls figured out the boys were not police officers when they could not produce any identification, and they drove off and called police, who tracked down the suspects in their pickup and arrested them.
Stassen said police impersonation is a felony.
