Man accused of impersonating FBI agent

AUSTIN (KXAN) – Police say a man was impersonating an undercover FBI agent and had all the things one would need to look legitimate.

An Austin police officer pulled 41-year-old Armando Rodriguez over after watching a 2002 black Expedition turn on flashing lights and make a traffic stop.

The officer said Rodriguez made odd answers to his questions and led him to believe he was impersonating an officer.

A search of Rodriguez’s home found fake FBI, CIA, and military credentials as well as a Marine uniform, handcuffs and a pistol.

Police are asking if anyone had an experience with Rodriguez impersonating an officer that they contact the police department. They think Rodriguez tried to dupe people in the Lamar Boulevard and Rundberg Lane area.
