PSL man arrested for impersonating a police officer

Port St. Lucie, Fl- On April, 20, 2018, PSLPD arrested 46 year old Lee Edgar Jalette for impersonating an officer.

Investigation began on April 4, 2018. Jalette entered the 7-11 store located in the 1600 block of SE Walton Road wearing and displaying a law enforcement badge to the clerk. He asked the clerk where she stocked the Mike’s Hard Lemonade. The clerk showed Jalette where the alcohol was stocked then told him that she could not sell alcohol after the 2:00 am curfew. Jalette said that “but I am a cop” he continued to say that he is the law and she could sell him the alcohol. The clerk said that if he is the “law” he would know that they would lose their license to sell alcohol if she sold it past the 2 am curfew. At this time a delivery truck pulled up and the man left the store without the alcohol.

The clerk was attentive enough to get the tag of the car the man was driving and passed it on to PSLPD. Further investigation revealed that on March 8, 2018, PSLPD went to a suspicious incident involving Jalette stating that he was a police officer and investigating a vandalism to his vehicle. Jalette was instructed by police at that time to avoid identifying himself as a police officer. 

Police later located and arrested Jalette for impersonating a police officer and transported him to the St. Lucie County Jail.
