WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE) - Authorities say they've arrested someone for impersonating a federal agent. Specifically, an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. What's more, the man reportedly told authorities that President Donald Trump appointed him to the position. This man was also in possession of meth and a food stamp card that didn't belong to him, according to law enforcement officers.

According to arrest records, deputies with the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office encountered Zachary Dwain McVay on July 28, 2019, after getting a report about a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot. McVay was sitting in a truck at 4816 Cypress Street.

During the encounter, deputies say McVay was uncooperative, professed to be the deputy's supervisor, and even gave multiple "badge numbers." He also reportedly admitted to smoking meth.

The report says McVay was also in possession of a Louisiana Purchase SNAP card with a name on it he did not know. The report also says McVay told deputies he did not know how he got the card.

A search of the truck revealed meth in a backpack and a glass pipe with residue in the glove box.

McVay was booked on charges of possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, unauthorized use of food stamps, and false impersonation of an officer.
