    Is it correct?

    Is the following sentence correct?

    I knew the Police was looking for a bank robber, but I should not have imagined it was you.

    In my opinion the sentence should sound:

    I knew the police were looking for you but I couldn`t have imagined it was you.

    Thank you very much.
