Sheriff’s Report

An unidentified man claiming to be a police officer responded to a Kamas woman’s home early Wednesday morning stating that he was responding to a noise complaint, according to the Summit County Sheriff’s Department’s daily report.

The woman said the suspect knocked on her door around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday morning and identified himself as a police officer responding to noise complaints about her crying child, the sheriff’s report stated. The suspect claimed he needed to check on the welfare of the child and walked inside the home. He told the woman that if he received another call about the noise, he would be back.

The woman described the man as a normal size male in his late 30s, with short black hair, wearing a dark blue uniform equipped with a duty belt, gun, pepper spray, and silver badge, but his uniform was absent of any name tag or communication devices, the report stated.
