SELBYVILLE — A 50-year-old Selbyville woman was charged with impersonating a police officer following an incident at a Royal Farms early Tuesday, Delaware State Police spokeswoman Master Cpl. Heather Pepper said.
According to authorities, Blake H. Leveton allegedly held up a shiny metal object and told two men she was cursing and yelling at that she was a police officer. She then removed a bandanna from a sales rack and left the store without paying for it, police said. The incident was reported at approximately 1:50 a.m.
Police said Ms. Leveton was later taken into custody without incident at her home. She was found with two baggies of heroin when searched, Cpl. Pepper said.
Ms. Leveton was charged with criminal impersonation of a police officer, disorderly conduct, shoplifting and possession of a controlled substance. She was arraigned in Justice of the Peace Court 3, Georgetown, and released on a $7,300 unsecured bond.
