An arrest warrant was issued for a man police say impersonated an officer at Albion College. Calhoun County prosecutor David Gilbert said he authorized the warrant. Calhoun County Sheriff Detective Dave Homminga said impersonating an officer is a serious crime that can be a one-year misdemeanor up to a four-year felony, if the person commits other crimes while impersonating law enforcement.
Around 1 a.m. Aug. 28, 2020, Calhoun County deputies said a male student was walking on campus when a man in a white Chevrolet Impala with emergency lights asked if he could pat him down. After doing so, the man left, deputies said. The student told deputies the man identified himself as a police officer. Deputies executed a search warrant at the home of a 30-year-old man on Tuesday in the 17000 block of 20 1/2 Mile Road. Deputies interviewed the man, and searched the residence.
Homminga said anyone with any information about the suspect, or footage of what happened, should contact the Calhoun County Sheriffs Office.
