Police in Montgomery County released photos of a man who is the owner of an unmarked white van possibly involved in a suspicious traffic stop.
Springfield Township police said an incident occurred Tuesday around 9:50 p.m. near the intersection of Church and Brent Roads in the Oreland section.
A witness reported to police that an unmarked white van, which was flashing "police-style" red and blue lights, appeared to have pulled over a car.
Investigators were able to trace the van to Charles Grossman, of Whitemarsh Township.
Police executed two search warrants and recovered identification cards, badges, police clothing, body armor and firearms. Grossman is a locksmith and part-time officer with the SPCA in Philadelphia, police said.
An investigation is underway to determine if anyone else has been stopped by Grossman and/or the van.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Springfield Township Police Department at (215) 836-1606.
