2 men impersonating as police officers in Jefferson County arrested
JEFFERSON COUNTY, Texas — Two men were arrested Friday afternoon after impersonating police officers in Jefferson County, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call around 11:30 a.m. after a person at a residence near Nato Road and Patna Drive complained about two men, Jon Aron and Long Nguyen, coming to the home and identifying themselves as police officers.
Deputies say the complainant described one of the suspects wearing a bulletproof vest and asked the two men if they were undercover and they said they were.
According to deputies, Aron, 22, and Nguyen, 31, informed the complainant that they were there to issue a warrant on “JJ”, but were told there was no one there by that name.
The complainant told deputies the suspects left driving away in a Black Chrysler 300.
Deputies located the suspect vehicle nearby and conducted a traffic stop where they discovered two pistols, a police officer bulletproof vest and a small amount of marijuana in the car.
Nguyen and Aron were arrested and are facing charges of impersonating a public servant, unlawfully carrying a weapon and possession of marijuana.
