Authorities say man caught prowling pretended to be Manchester cop


DUSTIN LEWIS 

MANCHESTER - A man pretending to be a police officer hunting down a suspect was arrested Tuesday night for prowling.

A resident called 911 about 10 p.m. to report a prowler looking into the windows of parked cars in the area of Bridge and Ash streets.

The resident confronted the man who told him he was a police officer looking for a theft suspect. He said he would be calling for "squad" cars.

The man could not produce police identification, so the resident asked him to leave his property and then called police.The man, identified by authorities as Dustin Lewis, 31, of 5 Chester St., left the area, but police arrested him a short time later after they said they found him hiding behind an air-conditioning unit on the south side of St. Hedwig's Church on Beech Street.
