For the second time recently, Denton police have received a complaint about someone impersonating a police officer.

At 3:47 p.m. Wednesday, officers received a report from a man that someone impersonated a cop and threatened to arrest him in the 1800 block of Mohican Drive. The complainant told police that a man came to his home, reports show.

Officer Ryan Grelle, spokesman for the department, said the two incidents aren’t related and that the man was related to the suspect.

The man allegedly impersonating a police officer has not been caught, Grelle said.

The Colony — A 60-year-old man was found dead on his doorstep Thursday morning by a neighbor in the 4100 block of Newtown Street, police said.

Lt. Darren Brockway with The Colony Police Department said a neighbor called to make a report after the person discovered the dead body on the front porch of the home shortly after 6 a.m.

Brockway said police were quick to handle the call so children wouldn’t witness the incident on their way home from school. The man had multiple medical conditions, police said.
