Allen David Reinemund Sentenced for Impersonating Homeland Security Agent
WILMINGTON, N.C (STL.News) A Holly Springs man was sentenced today to one year of probation for impersonating an agent of the Department of Homeland Security. On February 19, 2021, Allen David Reinemund pled guilty to a one count criminal information charging him with Impersonation of an Officer or Employee of the United States. Reinemund was also ordered to pay a $500 fine.
According to court documents and other information presented in court, Allen David Reinemund, 58, was operating a 1965 Shelby Cobra on US 401 in Fuquay-Varina, when he was stopped by the North Carolina Highway Patrol for speeding 80-mph in a 50-mph zone. When asked for his license, Reinemund told the trooper he “was on the job” and stated he worked for Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in an effort to avoid a speeding ticket.
The trooper ultimately arrested Reinemund for impersonation and speeding. Doubling-down, Reinemund presented the Wake County District Attorney’s Office a photograph of a HSI ballistic vest with his name and badge indicting that he was an agent of HSI, in an effort to have his state charges dismissed.
HSI agents were contacted and obtained sufficient information to obtain a search warrant for the residence of Reinemund.
