A Huntsville man is in the county jail after police said he spent the last several months impersonating a federal law enforcement officer.
Virgil J. Coleman, 30, was arrested Tuesday and charged with impersonating a peace officer, first-degree extortion, and possession of a pistol by a violent felon.
Spokesman Harry Hobbs said Coleman had been carrying on the scheme since February however he could no provide further details, citing the ongoing investigation.
Coleman posed as a United States Marshal, had a fake federal badge, and used the name Jaye Sanchez.
Hobbs encouraged anyone who may have had contact with Coleman/Sanchez to contact police.
