Guy Says He’s A Sheriff’s Deputy But He’s Flashing A Stolen Badge
There is a guy out there who is flashing a real El Paso County Sheriff's badge but he's actually a twerp who allegedly stole it. The El Paso Police Department says the guy in the video below is a car burglar who posed as a sheriff’s deputy when a homeowner confronted him while he was looking into vehicles in the homeowner's neighborhood.
The Police department says the suspect was breaking into cars on the morning of Wednesday, June 23, when he came across a Sheriff’s Deputy badge and stole it. He was seen little while later in the area of Montwood and Octubre checking out parked vehicles which is when the homeowner confronted him. The suspect flashed the stolen badge and told the homeowner he was a deputy conducting an investigation. He took off from the scene after that.
The problem with this guy having a badge is not only can he plausibly get away from a car burglary, he might also use it to get into your home or office. He could stop someone in their vehicle, maybe a woman, and assault them. He has an open invitation to get people to do what he says because he is flashing a valid badge. He needs to be caught.
The suspect is a Hispanic male in his late teens or early 20’s and has a tattoo on his left wrist.
