Authorities Make Two Separate, Same Day Police Impersonation Arrests in Annapolis and Pasadena

Local authorities this week made two individual police impersonation arrests on the same day.  

In a statememt, the Anne Arundel County Police Department said that on May 1, 2023, at approximately 5:00 p.m., their officers responded for an intoxicated male outside a medical facility in Annapolis. "The male was wearing an FBI hat and had a gold-colored badge hanging from his neck and told officers he was an ATF agent," the statement said.  "The male was unable to provide any further information regarding his employment with the ATF or show any law enforcement credentials." Witnesses allegedy reported that the male exposed his genitals while urinating near the roadway. 

The male was arrested, charged accordingly and identified as: Glenn Anthony Atkins (top photo), 64, of Annapolis. 

About 5 hours later, officers responded for a report of a person asking for illegal drugs from employees at the Shell station located at 103 Mountain Road. According to reports, the responding officer located the individual seated in her vehicle, a gray Honda Civic, with the engine running in front of the store, and noticed a white powdery substance and a straw on the center console. "While speaking with the vehicle occupant, the officer observed signs of impairment and asked her to get out of the vehicle to investigate further.  The occupant refused and claimed to be an “undercover detective," a press release stated.  "When the officer inquired further, the woman was unable to provide further information or any credentials."

The occupant reportedly refused to obey any of the officer's commands and struggled as the officer attempted to arrest her. "A small amount of suspected cocaine and paraphernalia was recovered from the vehicle," authorities revealed.  

The suspect was charged with police impersonation, other applicable charges and identified as:
