PALMER PARK, Md. -

Prince George's County Police have arrested a man for impersonating a police officer after trying to perform a traffic stop on a Capitol Heights police officer.

Police say at around 4:09 p.m. Wednesday, 29-year-old Anthony Kenneth Mastrogiovanni of Crofton, Md. was driving a white pickup truck on southbound Route 301 in Upper Marlboro when he attempted to pull over the officer, who was in his personal vehicle.

Police say the officer identified himself to the suspect. The suspect told the officer he was a military police officer from Louisiana and told the officer he was speeding. The officer told the suspect he had no jurisdiction and having blue and red emergency equipment in his truck was illegal.

The officer contacted Prince George's County Police as the suspect left the scene and followed the suspect until they arrived.

Anyone who believes they may have been a victim of Mastrogiovanni is asked to contact the Prince George's County Police Department's District V Investigative Section at (301) 856-3130.
