Prescott Police Arrest Arizona Resident for Impersonating An Officer

Recently, law enforcement apprehended an Arizona man for purportedly posing as a law enforcement officer to a female in Prescott.

The Prescott Valley Police Department reported that Kenneth Gregory of Chino Valley was placed under arrest and taken to the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office on charges of pretending to be a law enforcement officer.

On Nov. 11, authorities were alerted to the presence of someone in a red Dodge truck with red and blue flashing lights in the Walmart parking lot, according to police. The person making the call said the individual had identified himself as a law enforcement officer and was speaking to a female at the corner.

The individual on the phone informed the accused that they were going to contact the authorities, which caused the person to flee the scene, according to the police. The license plate of the suspect was noted.

Officers from Prescott Valley and Chino Valley joined forces to make an arrest of Gregory without any incidents occurring.

Law enforcement reported that a number of objects were confiscated at the time of the arrest, such as a badge, firearm, and gun belt, as well as the red and blue flashing lights located in the inside of the windshield of the truck.

If someone suspects they may have had contact with Gregory, or knows someone who has, they are urged to phone the Prescott Valley Police Department at 928-772-9267.
