Police impersonator loose in Augusta

This is too funny.

A 54-year-old Hephzibah man told deputies that a man posing as a police officer came to his home and asked to borrow $12,000 on Sunday, a Richmond County sheriff’s report states.

Richard Dwayne Close, of the 3500 block of Peach Orchard Road, said the man drove up in a 1990s Ford Crown Victoria, claimed to be a law enforcement officer and then asked for the loan at his front door.

Mr. Close refused to give him money, and the stranger drove off.

He is described as a 6-foot-tall, 220-pound black man in his mid-30s. He was bald and was wearing slacks and a peach polo shirt.

He wasn’t even wearing a stolen uniform or anything! And what kind of moron claims to be a police officer and then asks for $12,000? Yeah, like it’s standard procedure for cops to run around begging for huge loans…
