TOWSON, Md. - Police arrested a Parkville man for impersonating a police officer and they think he might be a repeat offender.
Police say on September 3 Brian Pianowski, 41, went into the 7-Eleven in the 8600 block of Pleasant Plains Road and claimed he was a police officer. He was wearing a polo shirt that said police across the back and had a badge around his neck. He was wearing a holster with an air pistol on his side, and was driving a silver Chevrolet Impala.
A 911 caller told police that the man worked for a local car dealership and was not in fact a police officer.
Police responded to the convenience store and charged Pianowski with impersonating a police officer . A search of his home and car recovered police equipment, including handcuffs, badges, clothing, patches, replica weapons, firearms, ammunition, and vehicle license plates.
Authorities have located at least one additional person who reported Pianowski tried to pull him over for a traffic stop.
Police are asking anyone who believes they may have been a victim to call 410-307-2020.
