Police Investigating Fake FBI Agent

The Associated Press

ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the case of a fake FBI agent who was nosing around Skyhaven Airport in Rochester, asking questions about security.

Police say a man wearing a jacket that said "FBI Anti-Terrorism" showed up at the airport last Wednesday and began asking about airport entrances and security. He took off when Skyhaven employees chased him away from hangars and called police.

Police said airport personnel were immediately suspicious of the man, who was wearing flip-flops and could not produce proper identification.

"The Rochester Police Department is currently the lead agency on this, but we are monitoring the situation," said Gail A. Marcinkiewicz, spokeswoman for the Boston FBI office.

The police department was assigning detectives and was concerned about what looked like an authentic FBI jacket, Capt. Jeff Taylor said. State police also have been notified, he said.

It is a federal crime to impersonate an officer of the law, Taylor said.
