Dickerson Teen Arrested for Impersonating a Police Officer

June 20, 2017

An off-duty Montgomery County Police Commander arrested a teenager from Dickerson last week, while driving on the ICC last week after the teen turned on flashing emergency lights to get drivers to move out of his way. Now police want to know if the teenager had any personal encounters with the public where he presented himself as a legitimate member of a law enforcement agency.

   According to police, at approximately 4:00 pm on Monday, June 12, 4th District Police Commander Laura Lanham was driving her unmarked police vehicle on the Intercounty Connector in a westbound direction just past Georgia Avenue when she came across a white Ford Crown Victoria activating emergency white and red lights.

   She saw that other vehicles in the roadway were moving out of its way. The commander noted that the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and was making unsafe lane changes.

   Commander Lanham conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle at Muncaster Mill Road and Shady Grove Road. As she approached the driver, he presented a metal badge and “Special Agent” Identification.

   Based on the on-scene investigation, the driver, Philip Jonathan Ross, age 19, from Old Hundred Road in Dickerson, was arrested and charged with impersonating a police officer and traffic citations pertinent to his driving offenses.

   Detectives want to determine if anyone has had a personal encounter with Ross presenting himself as a member of law enforcement. Anyone who believes that they may have had an encounter with the impersonator is asked to call the 6th District Investigative Section at 240-773-5770.
