The Owasso Police Department is investigating after receiving reports of someone posing as a police officer.
Officers say the suspect shows up at people’s homes identifies himself as a police officer and flashes a badge. The suspect then claims to be investigating a credit card fraud case and will ask the resident to provide them with their information to help with his “investigation”.
