Officers from the Alpena Police Department have received notice of a fake parking ticket that was left on a vehicle.

On Tuesday, a citizen reported she had received an orange parking violation affixed to her front windshield when her vehicle was parked in a city owned parking lot at Third Avenue and River Street.

After examining the ticket, it was determined that it was not issued by the Alpena Police Department or the Downtown Development Authority parking attendant.

It is currently unknown who placed the illegitimate notice on the vehicle.

Police are asking citizens to read any parking tickets left on their vehicles and contact the Alpena Police Department before paying the ticket if it seems questionable.
