Man Charged for Impersonating a Police Officer

An Austin man is in the Wichita County Jail after authorities say he was pretending to be a police officer.

23-year-old Joshua Casillas is charged with Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and Impersonating a Public Servant. However, authorities say he wasn't the only one.

According to the arrest affidavit,  the incident happened in June of 2012, when Casillas and three other males decided to wear T-shirts which had a badge on the front.

The affidavit also stated that one of the suspects told a resident at an apartment complex on Barnett Road that he was there "on police business." That male also pulled back the shirt to reveal a taser.

Wichita Falls police say the four males had planned to enter an apartment for the purpose of carrying out a so-called raid and confiscate marijuana. Authorities say one of the suspects even put on a vest which had the word “Police” on it.

Casillas was arrested and booked into the Wichita County Jail on Thursday, March 19th.  His bond is $25,000.
