“On May 22nd at 2 a.m., a Placer County Sheriff’s deputy conducted a traffic stop on westbound Interstate 80 at Douglas Boulevard, in Roseville.
The deputy contacted the driver and identified him as 32-year old Vincent Brown of Rocklin. Brown told deputies he was a German Foreign Service Agent. A search of Brown’s vehicle revealed a gold badge with the words, “Private Security” written. During the investigation, deputies learned Brown was not a law enforcement officer.
Deputies also found a loaded handgun, an illegal unregistered AR-15 pistol “ghost gun” with two high-capacity magazines loaded with armor-piercing rounds, a revolver, four loaded AR-15 magazines and an AR-15 pistol lower for a “ghost gun”, a non-serialized handgun “ghost gun” with modifications to turn it into an assault weapon, and two capsules of Amphetamine. Deputies also searched Brown’s person and found a switchblade in his pocket.
Additionally, Brown’s vehicle displayed a license plate that belonged to another car.
Brown was arrested for possession of a controlled substance while armed, vehicle registration fraud, impersonating a peace officer, carrying a concealed unregistered firearm in a vehicle that is under the person’s control, and possession of armor-piercing ammunition, an assault weapon, unconventional pistol, large-capacity magazine, and a switchblade. Brown has since posted bail.”
