The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office has made an arrest of a person impersonating a law enforcement officer.

Thomason Michael Barrett Hand, 17, from Travelers Rest has been arrested with four counts of impersonating a Law Enforcement Officer. The incidents occurred on Oct. 27, according to the report.

Investigators learned that Hand represented himself as a law enforcement officer at four separate locations, by verbally identifying himself as such and displaying a badge and what appeared to be a handgun, handcuffs and a radio on his waist.

Hand was able to acquire the law enforcement equipment through a relative who is a law enforcement officer without the relative having knowledge of these actions, according to the report.

Hand was transported to the Greenville County Detention Center where he was released on a $4,000 bond.
