Man Charged After Impersonating a Customs Officer

Updated: November 2, 2016

Last night we told you about the fake customs officer that was detained by Ladyville Police on Monday morning. Authorities were having a hard time finding a charge for him. Well, yesterday 21-year-old, Miguel Angel Manzanilla of Corozal Town was charged for committing a mischievous act. This is because he told officers that he was a Customs officer when he was not. He was not charged for impersonating a customs officer because there is no law against impersonating a Customs Officer although it exists in the case of a police officer and BDF soldier. Police say that Manzanilla stole the Custom’s uniform from his neighbor and altered it to fit him.
