Man Accused of Impersonating Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputy Tracks Woman Home
MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – An Atmore man is accused of following a woman and her two children home, after leaving a store on DIP.
Investigators say Charles Snider claimed he was the Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputy.
They say it’s unclear what Snider’s intentions were.
Snider was sentenced to the Metro Jail late Tuesday night.
According to investigators, Snider claimed to be an assistant assistant at the MCSO.
It turns out that this position does not exist.
Lt. Mark Bailey says Snider was watching a woman and her children at Dollar General on Dauphin Island Parkway.
Deputies say she left the store and noticed Snider following her too closely in a white Chevy Impala.
She sped off to go home.
The car was previously used as a police car and sold at auction years later. You can still see the projector on the driver’s side mirror.
Deputies say that once the woman got home, words were exchanged between her husband and Snider, asking who he was.
He pretended to be a sheriff’s deputy and took off, returning to the same General Dollar, where he was arrested.
No one was injured and deputies found no firearms in Snider’s car.
Investigators say Snider also claimed to be a former Escambia County deputy, which was also not true.
He was released on $3,000 bond.
