A man posing as a police officer stopped a motorist on Texas 26 early Tuesday and ordered her to pay $20 for a speeding ticket, authorities said.
She didn't, and police continued their search for the suspect.
It was at least the second time someone has posed as a police officer in North Texas since June 16. On that day, a woman was sexually assaulted by a man who posed as a police officer and pulled her over in Grand Prairie.
In the Grapevine case, a detective was searching for any surveillance videos in the area where the motorist was stopped.

"An investigation continues," police spokeswoman Amanda McNew said in a telephone interview Tuesday.
Police did not release any other information.
The woman told police she was stopped in the 2000 block of Texas 26 near Grapevine Mills by a white man driving a white, unmarked Ford Crown Victoria sedan, KXAS-TV reported.
The man was dressed in a police uniform with no belt, badge or gun. He told her she was going over the speed limit and that she could pay him $20 to get out of the ticket, according to the report.
It was all phony, police said.
Police sent out alerts to nearby police agencies to be on alert for the suspect's vehicle.
In the Grand Prairie assault, a woman was pulled over the morning of June 16 by a black SUV equipped with red and blue lights. The suspect told the woman to get into the backseat of his vehicle where he sexually assaulted her, Grand Prairie police said.
Grand Prairie police released a composite drawing of the suspect described as a Hispanic man about 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing about 250 pounds.
