Another phony cop gets busted
Police Impersonator Nabbed After Attempting To Pull Over Police
ODENTON, Md. -- Anne Arundel County police say they concluded a two-week investigation with the arrest last night of a Crofton man who works as an armed security guard.
According to police, Karl Salenieks, 34, was the driver who flashed blue and red emergency lights at an unmarked county police car last month near Fort Meade. When the plainclothes officers pulled over, they said Salenieks drove off, but not before the officers copied down the license plate.
The car was registered to Fallsway Security, the company that employed Salenieks as an armed guard. According to police, Salenieks is a convicted felon and not allowed to carry a gun.
Police searched his home Monday night and seized two handguns, a shotgun, a taser, police badges, police car lights and handcuffs.
Salenieks is charged with handgun charges, impersonating an officer and making a false statement to police.
