(SALEM, Ore. ) - Three days in a row a man identifying himself as a deputy sheriff came to the car lot at Good Fellows Auto Sales located at 218 Lancaster Drive NE to test drive a black, Chevrolet Tahoe.
On the third day employees grew suspicious and went along on the test drive.
That is when 40-year-old Anthony McGuire of Salem began yelling at a motorcycle to pull over. The motorcyclist pulled over and McGuire told the rider he was a deputy and he was stopping him for speeding.
Everyone involved grew suspicious of McGuire and called the real deputies.
McGuire admitted to impersonating a deputy and he was arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail.
If you believe you have been a victim of McGuire please call the Marion County Sheriff's office at 503-588-5032.
