HEBER CITY, Utah (AP) — Authorities say a Utah man, who claimed he was an FBI agent and on his way to the airport to see Russian President Vladimir Putin before carjacking a vehicle, has been arrested.
The Deseret News reports the 30-year-old Park City man was arrested Sunday for investigation of aggravated robbery, impersonating an officer, aggravated assault, theft of a vehicle and driving on a denied license.
Authorities say the man approached another man at a 7-Eleven and forcibly stole his Honda CR-V.
A Heber City police officer spotted the vehicle, pulled over the man and arrested him.
A Wasatch County Jail report says the man, while being taken into custody, "was rambling about working for the FBI and that he was on his way to the airport to go to Russia to 'meet with Putin.'"
