SAND SPRINGS, Okla. - A cop impersonator is still on the streets of Sand Springs Saturday. 

Police are trying to track the fake officer down before he pulls anyone else over. 

Police say the fake officer has already assaulted one woman this week after she was pulled over. Now officers are investigating every single tip in hopes it leads them to the suspect. 

Hailey Rhine was caught not wearing her seat belt by Sand Springs on Friday. 

"His name was Kyle. It was my first time being pulled over. He was pleasant, " she said. "He gave me a ticket, but he was pleasant."

Luckily, the officer was not  an impersonator, but it never crossed her mind he could have been faking it. 

"It worries me, it really does," Rhine said. 

It's become a reality in town. He drives a white SUV with flashing lights, and even has a fake Sand Springs badge. 

It's kinda scary because you never know if it's a real cop pulling you over or a fake one that's pulling you over and doing that", said driver Ally Cordell. 

"It diminishes our ability to do our job effectively and safely," said Sand Springs Captain Todd Enzbrenner. 

Since 2 Works For You first reported on the fake officer, police have received numerous tips and sightings. 

The impersonator is making drivers wary of officers-all while undermining the entire police force. 

"We certainly don't like somebody using our tools and our equipment to commit crimes and become predators on our citizens," said Enzbrenner. 

Police are now urging people to keep those tips coming until this copycat cop is caught. 

"Who wants to go through that? Being molested by a fake cop, that's not okay," said Rhine. 

Police are searching for a white male in a white SUV with a light bar and push guard on the front. 

They say if you do get pulled over in town, you should call 911 and have the officer behind you verified before you roll down your window.
