PACE, Fla. (AP) - The house guest of a former Florida Sheriff’s deputy is accused of stealing an old uniform in an attempt to get drugs at local pharmacies.

An arrest report says 34-year-old Johnny Ray Wilson went to a Target store in the Florida Panhandle and asked a pharmacy employee for the drug Suboxone. Investigators say he wore a dark green deputy uniform and pointed to a badge in his notebook when asked for his credentials. The employee didn’t give Wilson the drug.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://on.pnj.com/2oOlUI0 ) reports investigators tracked Wilson’s vehicle and found it belonged to the former deputy. The arrest report says Wilson took the former deputy’s firearm when he borrowed his car.

He faces multiple charges including impersonating a law enforcement officer. No lawyer was listed on court records.
