MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - A man, who detectives in Muskegon County say impersonated a police officer this weekend, was just released from prison last month.
Investigators say Dean Allen Dilts wore a baseball hat with "police" on the front to enter a home in Sullivan Township.
Dilts pulled a gun and and ordered the couple in the home to put on handcuffs, but one of them got away and Dilts left. He is wanted on charges of home invasion and felonious assault.
Detectives consider him armed and dangerous and say if you see him call 911. And if someone comes to your door claiming to be a police officer, know what to look for.
"We never do a warrant by ourselves. There'll be multiple officers, one if not more will be uniformed. If by chance it's a plain-clothed officer doing a warrant, there will be multiple identifications they will display, not just a badge," says Muskegon County Sheriff, Dean Roesler.
