Anne Arundel County police have charged a 33-year-old Pasadena man with impersonating a police officer.

Joshua Thomas Jones, of the 7900 block of Solley Road, was arrested shortly after the July 13 incident.

The female victim told police she was outside her home in the 3300 block of Pescara Court in Pasadena about 9 p.m., when a man pulled up in a white Ford Crown Victoria with large fog lamps. The driver identified himself as a sheriff's deputy, who would be serving a warrant in the neighborhood. When he asked the woman for her address, she immediately became suspicious, police said. The suspect got out of the car and began reading addresses out loud. As he left, the woman noted the license number, which allowed investigators to locate the suspect. She later confirmed his identity for police.
