The Coweta County Sheriff’s Office would like Cowetans to be aware of a man impersonating a federal agent in the area.

Late Wednesday night, residents in the area of Tomahawk Drive in Sharpsburg notified the sheriff’s office of a man who came to their home. The man identified himself as Robert Sturgess with the INS (the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service - dissolved in 2003), flashed a “gold badge,” said he was working on a “top secret case” and asked to enter the home.

The man said he was looking for the complainant’s juvenile son and knew him by name, and he referred to his case being about citizenship and human trafficking. The complainant was able to safely get the man out of the home, and the juvenile son managed to take a photograph of him.

He was last seen driving a silver vehicle that looked like a Pontiac Gran Prix, was wearing a suit and sunglasses and had a strange gold badge.

If you have any further information on this man, you can contact the sheriff’s office at 770-253-1502.
