Police bust fake fed in Florida

VERO BEACH, Fla., Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a man who claimed to be a U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration/CIA agent and demanded free items from a Dunkin' Donuts.

A pair of patrons of the Vero Beach store told police Aug. 18 that Clayton Joseph Schwey, 36, repeatedly entered the eatery during the preceding week and tried to convince workers he was entitled to free doughnuts, coffee and ice cream for being a DEA/CIA agent, TCPalm.com reported Tuesday.

One of the patrons asked to see Schwey's identification and the man said he did not have to show a badge because he was working undercover at the doughnut shop to investigate "crooked cops."

Police said Schwey, who assured officers he was a federal agent who had done work for Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar, was arrested on a felony charge of falsely impersonating an officer.
