Man arrested by Sparks police for impersonating an officer www.privateofficer.com
SPARKS, GA -March 2 2013 A man faces multiple charges after he falsely told Sparks police officers he was a police officer and drove around with a car decorated to look like it belonged to police.
The department began an investigation after they received multiple complaints that Richard Webb was driving around with the words “K9 Police” on the side of his car, causing people to think he was an officer when he wasn’t.
Sparks Police Chief Bob Myers says when they questioned Webb, he told them he was employed with the Quitman County Sheriff’s Office. When SPD looked into his statements, Myers says they were able to confirm he was not currently employed with the sheriff’s office and never had been.
Webb is charged with impersonating an officer, false statements and a misdemeanor charge of obstruction.
