UPPER MARLBORO, Md. - The Prince George’s County Police Department arrested a police impersonator after he pulled over an off-duty cop on Thursday.
Police arrested and charged Anthony Kenneth Mastrogiovanni, 29, of Crofton with impersonating a police officer after he tried to pull over a Capitol Heights police officer on Route 301 and Trade Zone Avenue on June 20.
The Capitol Heights police officer identified himself to the suspect who said that he was a military police officer from Louisiana. Mastrogiovanni then told the Capitol Heights officer that he was speeding. The Capitol Heights officer told the suspect he had no jurisdiction, and that having blue and red emergency equipment in his truck was illegal in Maryland. The suspect then left the scene as the Capitol Heights officer contacted Prince George’s County police and followed the suspect until they arrived.
Mastrogiovanni was arrested and charged with impersonating a police officer and released on his own personal recognizance.
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.
