Tulsa officials searching for man accused of impersonating deputy
TULSA, Okla. – Authorities in Tulsa are trying to find a man who allegedly impersonated a deputy.
Just after 10 a.m. on Thursday, the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office says a man accused a woman at a convenience store of a minor offense before flashing a badge and saying that he was from the sheriff’s office.
Officials say the man demanded her driver’s license and then made a call, making it seem like he was calling in her license and license plate information.
After that phone call, he allegedly said that he was “letting her off with a warning.”
The victim was suspicious of the interaction, so she decided to call the sheriff’s office.
Investigators with the department looked at surveillance footage from the convenience store and determined that the man was not a member of the department.
If you have any information on the incident, call the sheriff’s office at (918) 596-5600.
