SAN YSIDRO, Calif. – A 28-year-old man was left stranded on a South Bay freeway Tuesday afternoon after he was carjacked and robbed by a man impersonating a police officer,  according to the California Highway Patrol.

The man was traveling on westbound State route 905 just east of Interstate 805 around 12:30 p.m. when he was pulled over, the CHP said.

Screen Shot 2013-09-04 at 5.21.02 PM“He was stopped by a white Ford Crown Victoria with paper plates and that vehicle was displaying a red and blue light,” said CHP officer Jake Sanchez.“The suspect exited the vehicle wearing a black police jacket also carrying a holster which he believed to be a weapon on his right hip.”

The suspect told the victim to get out his car, then he sat in the driver’s seat and took off in the Jeep, the Crown Victoria immediately followed, Sanchez said.  The thieves also got away with a large amount of money.

“The victim was able to get a ride to Dairy Road where he contacted us,” said Sanchez.

Sanchez warned that CHP patrol cars have lights overhead, on the grill or on the side of the vehicle. Officers will be in a black and white marked car with a star and CHP emblem.

Only detectives and undercover officers drive in unmarked cars and usually they don’t make traffic stops, he said.

“If someone is stopped by a vehicle that’s unclear whether it’s truly a police vehicle, please contact 911 or pull over to a safe location,” said Sanchez.

The victim was not injured. Sanchez said this is a clear case of theft and impersonating an officer.  If caught, the suspects will face felony charges.

    I’m sooooo happy and glad that we allow anyone into this once great country. Irrespective of whether, or not the perp(s) are fucking mexicans or niggers, I am sooooo happy and glad that we allow anyone and everyone into this once great country. We should all get naked and roll around in thw filthy pool of multiculturalism and racial understanding we have created, so that we can show the fucking mexicans amd niggers and that we love what they are doing to this once great country. And while we are at it, we should embrace faggotry and degeneracy because we all know that they will lead to the undermining of pedophilia standards, which is what faggots, degenerates, and otherwise pieces of shit really want. Good for you, “America”. God bless America…however the fucking song goes… RIP.

      Unfortunately the victim was unable to get a good description, this is why CHP is hoping someone saw something.

    Seriously. The report on Fox 5 this morning said White Crown Vic, Paper Plates, Black Jackets, a Holster of some sort, but here is the kicker, they don't have a description of the suspects. Give me a break you PC piles over at Fox 5, and that dip shit cop Sanchez that works for the CHP. You didn't get a description, my white ass.

    Unless, as pfieffer suggests, they could be protecting their own. It's not that hard to believe, given the mentality of police officers and the fact that many laws don't apply to them. OH AND WHAT WAS THAT PART ABOUT THEY GOT OFF WITH A BUNCH OF CASH, TOO!?!?

    Sounds like crooked cops just watched a drug deal go down, impersonated criminals who would impersonate cops, and took the money. Shit happens every day in cities around this great, shitty nation.

    My son was pulled over in Vista by what could be the same people. He got a good description of the fake cop and we turned it into the SDSO and CHP.
