A Nacogdoches man was arrested yesterday afternoon at the Sheriff’s Office after impersonating a police officer. Sheriff Jason Bridges advised that he was notified by office staff that there was a man in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Office that had identified himself as a Texas Ranger and was asking to speak with the Sheriff.

Sheriff Bridges made contact with the man and observed that he had a Glock pistol on his side in a holster but was not displaying any type of badge. Sheriff Bridges did not recognize the subject who was posing as a peace officer.

Upon contact with the subject, he stated that he wanted his weapon back that the Sheriff’s Office had seized previously. The subject was adamant that he was a Texas Ranger and was employed with the Texas Department of Public Safety as a peace officer. The subject had no credentials upon him verifying he was a peace officer and a quick check of his name revealed that he was not.

The suspect was identified as Ford Cummings 39 years of age from Nacogdoches. Sheriff Bridges disarmed Cummings who was carrying a loaded .40 caliber pistol on his side.

Cummings was taken into custody and booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail for Impersonating a Public Servant a 3rd degree felony.

Cummings was arrested in 2012 by Sheriff Deputies when he entered the lobby of the jail carrying a loaded firearm on his side and claimed he was with the DEA. Cummings was requesting the jail to release a prisoner to him at that time.
