Man sought in officer impersonation case

BUTLER COUNTY, Pa. (WKBN) – Pennsylvania State Police are seeking a man they say impersonated a district attorney.

Police said the man entered several retail businesses in Butler County on Wednesday. They said the man went into a tobacco shop and told one employee that he was Allegheny District Attorney Stephen Zappala.

He then went into two other establishments. While in these establishments, he made up stories to make the store employees believe that they shorted him merchandise on a previous day, according to a police report.

The businesses apologized for their mistakes and gave the man items he claimed were owed to him, the report states.

The man was seen driving a late model white sedan, which would be similar to a unmarked police vehicle.
