November 9, 2018

KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) — Police in Maine say a New Hampshire man posed as a police officer looking for a missing boy at a playground.

The Portland Press Herald reports 30-year-old Ryan Calista, of Dover, New Hampshire, was arrested and charged Wednesday with impersonating a public servant.

Police say Calista was dressed in a police hat and vest and had a flashing blue light on his truck when he drove over to a recreation center in Kennebunk. Investigators say Calista told onlookers he was searching for a missing 13-year-old boy.

Police say they received information about a similar event in Dover before they arrested Calista.

A hearing is scheduled for Feb. 20.
