Police arrested a Pasadena man for allegedly impersonating a police officer on Friday, according to a police news release.
Joshua Thomas Jones, 33, of the 7000 block of Solley Road in Pasadena, was charged with impersonating a police officer, according to Anne Arundel County police.
On July 13 at approximately 9:17 p.m., officers responded to the 3300 block of Pescara Court for the report of a suspicious subject. Upon arrival, officers spoke with a female victim who said she was outside her home when a suspicious vehicle pulled up. She described the vehicle as a white Ford Crown Victoria with no hubcaps and large fog lamps.
According to the release, the victim said the driver of the vehicle identified himself as a member of the sheriff’s office and indicated he was there to serve a warrant. He then asked the victim for her address.
The victim became suspicious, realizing that if the man was a police officer, he should already know her address, according to the release. The suspect then exited his vehicle and began reading addresses out loud before leaving the area.
The victim was able to get the tag number from the Crown Victoria. Further investigation revealed that the vehicle was listed to someone living on Solley Road in Pasadena, according to the release.
Officers later responded to the Solley Road address and located the vehicle and the suspect. Police said the victim was able to identify Jones, who was then arrested and charged.
