A Dundalk man recently was charged with impersonating a Baltimore County police officer in southern Maryland and local officials are concerned he may have engaged in similar behavior in Baltimore County.
Donald James Church Jr. of the unit block of Sollers Point Road was charged with impersonating an officer by St. Mary's County police officials.
Baltimore County police officials are asking that anyone in Baltimore County who may have encountered Church while he was impersonating an officer to report the incident to local authorities.
Working with St. Mary's County investigators, Baltimore County detectives learned that Church claimed to be a Baltimore County officer working with the narcotics unit and North Point Precinct 12, according to a statement from the Baltimore County Police Department.
Officers on May 15 served a search warrant on his home and recovered police paraphernalia that included a badge, a realistic looking toy gun and imitation police reports that he had written, according to the statement.
Witnesses told investigators that Church had been seen wearing what appeared to be a handgun and holster out in public while wearing a badge around his neck.
Church has also been known to go by the names Donald Roberts, Donald Robins, Don Meyers and Don Myers.
Baltimore County police are asking anyone who may have had an encounter with Donald Church Jr. while he impersonated a police officer to call 410-307-2020 to report the incident.
