Man poses as police officer in Richfield neighborhood

In Richfield a homeowner encountered in the 3800 block of Overlook Drive a man acting suspiciously and acting like a police officer. 
When the man attempted to obtain the license plate number on the vehicle,  the man quickly exited his vehicle and claimed to be a police officer as he displayed a gold wallet badge. 
The man advised the homeowner he was impeding  a police investigation. The suspect is described as a white man in his late 40's to early 50's, longer brown hair.  The suspect was driving a dark colored (black, blue, or grey) Ford Five Hundred.  
Washington County Sheriff's Office is looking into if the subject was a legitimate law enforcement officer,  but the Sheriff's Office did not have personnel working in that area at the time.
