A federal agent friend of mine sent me this story, yesterday, and remarked:
So…an armed imposter gained entry at the USBP [U.S. Border Patrol] Checkpoint in Temecula without suspicion…………..
Like the federal agents in the movie, “Please Remove Your Shoes,” say, we’re LESS safe than before 9/11 and have been ever since that day. More of your Homeland Security tax dollars NOT at work–remember, if this guy could get a gun and a kidnapped woman into an airport and on a plane without anyone checking his credentials or identity, what terrorist couldn’t do that? And where and how did he get the federal clothes? Well, that’s not too difficult, either, as I know personally. And the Border Patrol people didn’t check the guy either. At pretty much every stop of the way, this guy got away with it.
Gregory Denny: Fake Federal Marshal Who Fooled Border Patrol & TSA Officials
A Hemet man was arrested after he allegedly took a woman from her home, handcuffed her and put her on a plane to the Philippines while posing as a U.S. Marshal, authorities said.
On January 15, Hemet Police said Gregory R. Denny, 37, allegedly went to a home on the 1200 block of Stepstone Court and took a woman into custody.
Denny was reported to be wearing clothes with a federal logo on it and a badge around his neck and apparent handgun at the time of the incident.
Denny allegedly told the woman and the other occupants in the home he was deporting her according to Hemet police Lt. Duane Wisehart.
The suspect then proceeded to handcuff the woman of the home, took her to the U.S. Border Patrol station in Murrieta, where he was told the woman had no warrant in the system and declined to take his “prisoner,” authorities said.
Hemet Police said they were then told Denny drove the woman to the San Diego International Airport, where he escorted the handcuffed woman through the airport and to the gate of a departing flight to the Philippines. . . .
Denny first identified himself to Hemet Police as a U.S. Marshal, but upon verification by authorities, it was discovered that he was never was employed by the U.S. Marshal’s Service or any law enforcement agency.
Ha! It takes the local cops to discover a fraud. Everyone else looked the other way. Everyone else who works for . . . Eric Holder (whose DoJ is in charge of Federal Marshals) and Janet Napolitano a/k/a “The Lesbionic Woman.”
Oh, and it gets worse. This crazy man is free on bond and he fooled the feds with a replica gun and badge that the cops spotted as obvious fakes:
A Southern California man posed as a U.S. marshal to kidnap a distant cousin’s wife and falsely deport her to the Philippines, police said Tuesday.
Police arrested Greg Raymond Denny Jr. of Riverside County last month on suspicion of impersonating an officer and kidnapping Cherriebelle Hibbard.
Police said Denny, 37, barged into Hibbard’s Hemet home on Jan. 15 wearing a fake badge and a shirt that said “U.S. Marshal.” Denny handcuffed the woman at gunpoint and forced her husband to buy her a plane ticket. He then used a fake badge to get through San Diego airport security and put her on a plane to her home country, according to a police report.
Craig Hibbard said he called the U.S. Marshals Service three days later and officials there told him Denny wasn’t an agent.
Police said they arrested Denny after he came to the station for questioning wearing a fake badge and a replica pistol. Denny claimed he was a federal marshal but later admitted he impersonated a marshal and confirmed the family’s account, Lt. Mark Richards said. No motive was released. . . .
Cherriebelle, who is five months pregnant, wed Craig Hibbard three years ago. She canceled her immigration documents and said she wanted to go home after the two fought last year, Craig Hibbard said.
She later renewed her green card and was waiting for it to be processed when Denny abducted her, Craig Hibbard said. Immigration officials in San Bernardino told her she was allowed to stay in the United States in the meantime, he said.
Denny said Craig Hibbard’s father told him Cherriebelle was in the country illegally and the couple was having problems at home, The Press-Enterprise reported. Denny and Craig Hibbard are distant cousins, but Hibbard said they met only twice before. . . .
In a phone interview from Manila, Cherriebelle Hibbard told the newspaper she had never met Denny and didn’t realize he was related to her husband. She said she was afraid of going to jail when he pounded on the door.
“I’m pregnant and don’t want to take the kids away from my husband,” she said.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lori Haley said federal marshals do not carry out deportation orders. Only ICE or FBI agents can make arrests for immigration violations. The defendant then gets a hearing before a deportation order is issued.
Denny is free on $50,000 bond.
Hilarious. Like I said, if this nutjob could get away with this, so could anyone working for terrorists.
