LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) - Lexington Police are looking for a man who claimed himself to be an agent of the U.S. Marshal's Office while making a stop at two Midlands-area GameStop locations.

According to police, the man walked into two GameStop locations on Sunset Boulevard and Broad River Road over the weekend and told employees he needed access to inspect gaming consoles at the stores.

The man, approximately 50 years old with a stocky build and dark hair, reportedly flashed a badge to employees and was wearing handcuffs and possibly a holster on his waist.

Employees did not allow him to inspect anything, police said.

He was seen leaving both locations in a black 4 door sedan, possibly a VW Passat.
