A stranger in a Coast Guard uniform introduced himself to New Port Richey police Chief James Steffens. It was a Memorial Day event at a cemetery. The man said he was Lt. Cmdr. Roy Antigua, and he sat next to the chief in a special section for officials.
"Everybody around there thought that he was the real deal," Steffens said.
But it turns out Antigua is a man of many identities and disguises, none of which appear to be real, authorities said. (SNIP) Antigua, 52, had a NASA uniform. U.S. Customs. The Navy. The CIA. Secret Service. Homeland Security. Dozens of military medals. A flight helmet and flight instructor badge. A Boy Scout troop leader uniform. (SNIP) Investigators also found ammunition for semiautomatic guns and assault rifles, but no weapons. Antigua's shiny black Cadillac Escalade with dark tinted windows had a Department of Homeland Security registration sticker and a Coast Guard license plate. He had blue flashing lights and handcuffs.

Everybody needs a hobby...
Sounds like he could run for President
Like the ‘Sclade with Homeland Security Stickers.
Wonder if it had 22 inch rims too?
Choom Gang wanna be?
There is a video at the link for the article.
I learned to like this series in reruns. It deserved some resolutions too.
My response would have been...
Yeah, but did he file to run for Senator from Illinois yet?
If he hurried, he could even be the keynote speaker at the Democrat convention. You don’t need any documents or experience to do that from what I hear.
Sgt. Ron Mexico!
We accept that the Treasury Dept is headed up by a tax evader, and the Prez is a freaking foreigner.
So what if little people get inspired?
Hey, kooky times, sorry...!
How many of these ID’s voted for Obama?
Okay, I admit it. His resume is way better than mine.
Thanks for posting.
Abraham Lincoln said that the only way to defeat the US would be from within. I hope this is not evidence of a tip of an iceberg of a group of fraudster officials.
Was one of the ID cards in the name Barry Soetoro? Was it hanging on a Jethro Bodine Double Naught Spy suit?
Actually there is (or at least was). In WWII, the War Department hired/contracted civilian pilots to train new military pilots. These civilian instructors, though not members of the uniformed services, were issued a set of wings and cap badges that denoted their status.
"This story scares me because great harm could have been caused by this man. Hobbyist, NO. Dangerous possibilities, YES."
Many of us supported the Stolen Valor Act for more than one reason.
Good thing they differentiated between the ammunition designed especially for assault weapons and just the plain run-of-the-mill semiautomatic kind...
