KALAMAZOO, Mich. — He had three badges, a holstered BB gun, handcuffs and a hat embroidered with the letters "FBI."

Inside the 53-year-old Kalamazoo man's blue Ford Aspire subcompact equipped with switch-activated flashing lights was a red, rotating light for the roof, Kalamazoo Township police say. Investigators say the man was well-equipped to impersonate a police officer.

Officers found the man with all his policelike gear at about 10:10 p.m. Tuesday in the 3000 block of North Pitcher Street after receiving a call about a suspicious person, township police said.
