LAKE WORTH, Fla. – Deputies are looking for a man they said impersonated a police officer on multiple occasions at a Walgreens store in Lake Worth.

In the first incident from Feb. 14, deputies said the man flashed a badge at an employee, and told the cashier that he expected special treatment while returning toys without a receipt because he is a police officer.

On March 20, the man visited the same store, helping himself to beverages and snacks as he walked around the store.

Deputies said an employee confronted the man and again stated that he was a police officer and he thought he could have the items for free.

Detectives describe the police impersonator as being 6 feet tall with dark hair. He also has a small round tattoo on the right side of his neck, as well as tattoos on the inside of his left forearm.

Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
