GRANDVILLE (WWJ) – Grandville police say a woman accused of impersonating an officer across West Michigan has been arrested in Columbus, Ohio.
A Detective told The Grand Rapids Press the 27-year-old suspect is jailed on a $50,000 bond and faces a felony count that could land her in prison for up to four years.
