New Braunfels Police asked for help in the search for a man who has been impersonating a law enforcement officer, according to a Facebook post Wednesday.
Police said the man is wearing a uniform similar to a Texas DPS Trooper and pulls vehicles over for different violations and may ask to search a victim’s vehicle.
