STOCKTON, CA - A man was arrested Friday for impersonating a San Joaquin County sheriff's deputy.
Vieng Say Keosavang contacted a man last week saying if he wanted a job in booking then he would have to give Keosavang with $75, a DMV print out and ID, Deputy Dave Konecny said. Keosavang told the man to put the items in an envelope and he will pick them up later.
The man told deputies that Keosavang claimed he worked for the San Joaquin Sheriff's Department and was dressed in a black uniform with a San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department patch, a name tag and a black duty belt.
Konecny said on Friday the man, with a deputy present, called Keosavang and set up a meet where he could drop off the items Keosavang wanted. Deputies arrested Keosavang on the 7900 block of West Lane in Stockton when he showed up for the meet.
