ROSEVILLE, Calif. (KTXL) — A Rocklin man who was pulled over by a Placer County deputy allegedly identified himself as a “German Foreign Service agent” before being arrested Saturday.
The sheriff’s office says a deputy stopped 32-year-old Vincent Brown on Interstate 80 in Roseville at 2 a.m. When the deputy talked to Brown, he identified himself as an “agent.”
A badge with the words “private security” was later found during a search of Brown’s car. The sheriff’s office said the deputy soon learned Brown was not a law enforcement officer.
According to the sheriff’s office, several guns, including assault rifles, were found in the car. Deputies also found armor-piercing rounds and a “ghost gun.”
As they continued to investigate, deputies found two capsules of amphetamine and learned that the license plate on Brown’s car belonged to a different car.
He was arrested on suspicion of having a controlled substance while armed, impersonating a peace officer and other gun-related charges.
The sheriff’s office says he has since posted bail.
