BENTON COUNTY (KFSM) – Two men were arrested in a police impersonation case, according to a news release.

On Friday (Feb. 13) at 10:03 p.m., detectives with the Benton County Sheriff’s Office pulled over a suspected law enforcement vehicle for improper display of a license plate near Bulldog Avenue in Springdale, deputies said.

The car caught their attention because it had an Ohio license plate displayed through the rear window of the vehicle, the release states. Though the vehicle was black and white with police decals displayed on all sides, it didn’t have any city, county or state name identifying the jurisdiction of the “officers” inside of it, according to deputies.

The car detectives pulled over was a Ford Crown Victoria (seen below) with a red and blue emergency light bar on top and a push-bar affixed to the front, the release states.

The suspects were identified as convicted felon Kendall Wright and Joshua Presley, deputies said.

Both suspects were booked into the Benton County Detention Center, and Kendal Wright faces charges of first-degree criminal impersonation, possession of a controlled substance, emergency lights and sirens by prohibited persons, driving on a suspended driver’s license and lights for emergency vehicles violations, according to the release. Presley faces a charge of possession of a controlled substance, jail records state.

As of Feb. 18 at 1:30 p.m., both suspects had bonded out of jail, according to deputies.
