Amarillo Man Charged With Impersonating A Fire Marshal
Over the years I have heard many stories about people impersonating police officers. And while that is wrong, impersonating a fire marshal is just as bad. An Amarillo man has been charged with just that.
On August 28th of this year, 38 year old Dustin Mark Fuller walked into a business pretending to be a fire marshal. While no name was given, the business is located on the 500 block of North Hughes Street.
He walked in a presented a certificate that stated that the building was unsafe. He provided the store worker with paperwork and ordered her to shut it down immediately.
An eyewitness identified Fuller and he was arrested. Not only was he charged with impersonating a public servant but for tampering with a government record. The tampering charge alone is a state jail felony and carries a maximum punishment of two years in a state jail, and the impersonation charge, a third-degree felony, is punishable up to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
Fuller was released on Tuesday on a $8,500 bond.
What causes people to do things like this? Not only are they breaking the law, they are working at breaking it. It would take a lot of time to get all the documents to look legit and then you still have to go through with it.
This is insane! What do you think about this?
