Police charged Tyler Scott Polkinghorne, 19, of 5066 Dequincey Dr. in Fairfax, with one count of Impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer. Polkinghorne turned himself in at the Adult Detention Center on Monday.

Police said the investigation remains ongoing. Further charges are possible.

Fairfax County Crime Solvers said last week they were offering a reward to anyone led them to information on the run of impersonations that began last October. This arrest did bot end up as the result of a tip through Crime Solvers, however.

Crime Solvers said each of the three incidents in Fairfax County, a person driving on a public highway encountered a vehicle behind them that activated emergency lights, similar to what you would see on an unmarked police car.

Police did not say where in the county the incidents occurred.

The suspect vehicle in each of these three incidents has been described as a black Volkswagen sedan such as a Jetta or Passat, bearing Virginia license plates.

In each of the three incidents, the drivers did not believe the vehicle was an actual police car and therefore, did not pull over. The suspect vehicle drove away without further contact.
