DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — James Loper of 14395 Campanelli Drive in Delray Beach is not a police officer.

But Loper, allegedly, wanted someone to think that he was.

Loper was arrested on Thursday and booked into the Palm Beach County jail on a charge of “false personation of officials,” according to court and jail records reviewed by BocaNewsNow.com. While the affidavit of probable cause continues to be processed by the Clerk of Courts, specific orders already executed by a judge suggest the seriousness of Loper’s alleged actions:

Judge Caroline Shepherd ordered Loper to have “no weapons,” and “no possession of any law enforcement paraphernalia.”

Judge Shepherd found probable cause on Friday. The State of Florida is set to file charges on November 18th.

We will update once the arrest report is processed. Loper was released from the Palm Beach County Jail on $1,000 bond. He was arrested by real deputies from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
