Officials are asking the public to be on high alert after a woman reported being stopped by a police impersonator in Godfrey.
It happened as the girl was walking to school in the 4000 block of South Broadway.
Authorities say after re interviewing her, there were inconsistencies with the story.
Chief Tom Byrne said the man stopped the woman on Polo Drive off South Hanley Rd., just after 8 a.m this morning.
Authorities say three men kicked in the door while the family was inside.
