Applicant for Limestone sheriff’s position charged with impersonating peace officer
A Harvest teen who went to the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office to apply for a job ended up being charged with impersonating a police officer, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
Logan William Martin, 18, of Harvest, on Friday applied for a job as a corrections officer.
“Capt. Tammy Waddell received a tip that Martin had stolen blue lights from the Madison County Career Tech Law Enforcement vehicle, put them in his car, and was stopping cars and impersonating a peace officer,” the Sheriff’s Office said.
When interviewed, Martin confessed to impersonating a peace officer in Limestone County, Madison County, Jackson County, and Lincoln County, Tennessee, the Sheriff’s Office said. A search of his car revealed property of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, Madison County Sheriff’s Office and Huntsville Police Department, including dash cameras, blue emergency lights and a police radio, according to the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office.
Martin was charged with impersonating a peace officer and released from the Limestone County Jail after posting a $2,500 bond.
