GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Spartanburg County deputies said a Greer woman was arrested after she entered several people's homes pretending to be an undercover narcotics investigator.
Deputies said they were called to an address on Waterwheel Street on Friday afternoon in reference to a suspicious person call.
At the home, the owner told them that a woman claiming to be a Spartanburg County deputy had stopped by, claiming she was checking to see who had prescription narcotics in their home.
Deputies said another resident on Fond Hart Drive reported the same woman had shown up there and asked to see all prescription drugs in the house.
The Greer Police Department later contacted the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office and provided a case file of a similar incident their agency had worked in 2013, in which Christine Deyoung, 48, of Joines Court, was accused of pretending to be a Department of Social Services worker seeking narcotics.
Deputies said they showed the complainants of a photo line-up including Deyoung, and both of them were able to positively identify Deyoung as the suspect in this case.
Deyoung was arrested and booked into the Spartanburg County jail on a charge of impersonating a police officer Monday morning. Online jail records show two additional counts where filed against Deyoung after her arrest.
She was given a $3,000 surety bond on the three charges in court on Monday afternoon.
The charge carries a punishment of between 30 days to a year in jail upon conviction.
Spartanburg County deputies are also encouraging residents in either county who may have been a victim to file a crime report in whichever county they reside.
