Three underage boys from Half Moon Bay and Vallejo were caught late Friday night in a fake police car after not using a turn signal. Pulled over by a San Mateo Sheriff’s deputy in Half Moon Bay, the officer noticed strobe lights, an amber flashing light bar, and other lights mimicking those of a police cruiser. The car was also outfitted with a public address system and metal cages over its rear passenger windows.
Further investigation revealed that one boy was wearing a bullet-proof vest and a military police badge. Both items, as well as others in the car, had been stolen during a car burglary in Vallejo this past Friday.
