LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A man is being held without bond in New Mexico after allegedly impersonating a police officer and leading authorities on a high-speed chase.

Dona Ana County sheriff’s officials say 38-year-old Eduardo Soliz was arrested Monday on suspicion of aggravated fleeing of a police officer, receiving stolen property and impersonating a police officer.

They say Soliz had active warrants out of Texas for burglary and embezzlement.

A Las Cruces resident called 911 to report a possible prowler in the area who was identifying himself as a police officer.

The caller said the man was wearing a bulletproof vest with what appeared to be law enforcement badges on his chest and belt.

Sheriff’s deputies say a chase ensued that reached speeds of up to 100 mph before authorities deflated his car’s tires.
