The Absecon Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a man who posed as a police officer and conducted a motor vehicle stop at Absecon Boulevard and Turner Avenue this Monday around 10:45 p.m.

The man stopped a 24-year-old woman from Brigantine as she was heading home late Monday night on Absecon Boulevard, police report. The man was dressed as an officer and told the woman he was on an assignment in the area and asked to search her car.
