An Evans man told authorities Thursday that he received an early-morning visit from a man claiming to be a police officer.
The Shawns Way resident said a knock at the door woke him about 1 a.m. When he answered, a white male wearing khaki pants and stripped shirt asked for Keith.
After the resident said no one named Keith lived there, the man told him he was a police officer. That’s when he said he noticed his visitor had a holstered handgun strapped to his belt.
However, the homeowner was holding a gun of own behind the door, but the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office report didn’t specify what type of gun.
The man told the alleged officer he would put his gun away only after he saw badge or law enforcement I.D.
At that point, said the resident, his visitor ran to a beige-colored Ford Crown Victoria bearing no government license plate and drove away.
Deputies canvassed the area near the home, but failed to find the vehicle.
