GLEN JEAN, WV -

(WVVA) Deputies in Fayette County arrested a man they say showed a badge to workers at a Glen Jean towing company.

According to Sheriff Mike Fridley, the man then questioned employees about impounded vehicles and what happens to "drugs that are confiscated from vehicles."  The workers didn't believe him and called 911.

The man left before deputies arrived. But they eventually located him.

Paul Horne, 35, of Oak Hill was charged with impersonating a police officer. Sheriff Fridley says Horne was driving a "Crown Victoria, a former police car that was sold at auction."

Horne was able to make bond.
