(KMOV.com) – An Arnold man was charged with impersonating a police officer after he attempted to get into two different homes in House Springs, police said.
Kevin Kellermann, 48, faces five counts, including impersonating a police officer and endangering the welfare of a child.
According to court documents, Kellermann went to the home of Kevin Maassen in the 5400 block of Ruth Drive and told him he was a “Detective Investigator” with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
Kellermann asked permission to search the residence for a subject named Patrick Deal. He told the Maassen there was an “APB” warrant out for Deal’s arrest. When Maassen refused, Kellermann left and went to the home of Michael Deal in the 500 block of Dalton Drive.
After giving the same story, Deal gave Kellermann permission. However, he did not enter the home and left the scene quickly.
A short time later, he returned and started a verbal argument where he yelled aggressively. When police showed up, Kellermann fled the scene with a 15-year-old passenger.
After a vehicle pursuit, a deputy saw Kellermann pulling into a driveway of a home. He then fled on foot, ignoring commands from police. Eventually, the deputy was able to subdue him.
