YORK, Pa. (WHTM) – A York County man was arrested after police said he tried to break into the home of an ex-paramour and then identified himself to authorities as a Washington, D.C. police officer.
Cook on Sunday tried to get into a Manchester Township home and set off a security system, according to a news release from Northern York County Regional police.
He fled the home and was stopped by officers. During the stop, Cook identified himself as a police officer from Washington, D.C. and provided officers with a badge case and a “Special Police” badge, but Cook was found not to be an active officer with Metro D.C. police, the release states.
Cook had been warned previously not to have contact with the woman, police said.
