Man convicted for impersonating a police officer


EDGAR CO, Ill. (WCIA) — An Indiana man was found guilty of Impersonating an Officer.

Justin Hefner walked into the sheriff’s office last year. He asked deputies if they would help him make arrests. Officers were already aware of Hefner and had been looking into his after he made anti-officer posts on social media.

He was carrying a BB gun when he was arrested. Deputies also found a gun inside his car.
