An 18-year-old is charged with impersonating a police officer after he applied for a job as a Limestone County corrections officer.

Deputies were first alerted after Logan William Martin came into the sheriff’s office to apply for the position. The sheriff’s office believes Martin stole blue lights from a Madison County Career Tech Law Enforcement vehicle and put them in his car.

After tracking him down, investigators found items from several agencies inside his 2008 white, two-door Toyota Solara. The blue lights, dash cameras, a police radio and other items belonging to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA), the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office and the Huntsville Police Department were recovered.

“Captain Tammy Waddell and Captain Caleb Durden interviewed Martin, and he confessed to impersonating a peace officer in Limestone County, Madison County, Jackson County, and Lincoln County, TN,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release.

Martin, of Harvest, was booked into the Limestone County Detention Center on a $2,500 bond. He has since been released.

Deputies want to hear from victims who may have been pulled over by Martin. Anyone with information is asked to call Durden at 256-232-0111.
