HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating reports that a man impersonated a patrol trooper in south-central Kansas.

The man was driving a white Ford Crown Victoria with a light bar on top, and stopped a motorist in Kingman County.

Patrol Lt. Roger Baughman told The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/MGDmCU ) that the impersonator handcuffed the motorist, searched his vehicle, took the handcuffs off the man and then left.

He says the impostor is carrying a pistol and wears a phony uniform.

The suspect is described as a white man, about 5-feet-10-inches tall, and wearing a navy blue top and pants. He also had a duty belt, pistol, handcuffs and a magazine holder.
