* Man Impersonating a Deputy Sheriff in Orange County to Commit Fraud

ID #12-87

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect in this sketch. Deputies report that on Sunday, March 11, 2012, at about 12 noon, this suspect entered The Jig Shop, located at 34186 Pacific Coast Highway, Dana Point, and inquired about fishing rods and reels. After two hours of shopping the suspect agreed to purchase 4 rods and 4 reels at a cost of $2,917.86.

The suspect wrote a check and provided fictitious identification. The suspect also showed the clerk a star shaped badge and said he was a deputy sheriff from Mission Viejo. The suspect refused to remove the fictitious identification from his wallet to be photocopied; it could only be copied through the plastic window of the wallet. The issuing bank later contacted the victim and advised him of the fraudulent activity.
