A Jamesport man has been accused of impersonating a Deputy Sheriff arrested and charged. The Chillicothe Police Department arrested Jeremy Brannon, 29, on Wednesday.
In a press release, from the Livingston County Sheriff's office:
Information on a man arrested for alleged Financial Exploitation of the Elderly/Disables black B felony was made through an investigation by the Chillicothe Police recently. Today we received a Livingston County Arrest warrant for Jeremy R. Brannon, 29, Jamesport, for allegedly misrepresenting himself as a Deputy Sheriff and needed a Chillicothe resident to assist him in an investigation. Mr. Brannon allegedly persuaded the victim into giving him at least $1,400 dollars, which he did not intend to return.
Again the Chillicothe Police investigated this crime and made the arrest. I am placing it on our website as the allegations include the suspect portrayed himself as a Deputy Sheriff while committing a crime in Livingston County. Mr. Brannon does not nor has ever worked for this office. We are asking anyone with similar information or experiences to report that to your local law enforcement agency.
Brannon is currently being held in the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash bond.
