Indicted for posing as marshal


March 04, 2006

A 28-year-old Baltimore man was indicted yesterday on charges that he impersonated a deputy U.S. marshal while handcuffing and demanding money from someone at gunpoint.

Ronald Edward Ector, 28, was arrested Jan. 26 after witnesses called city police to report the robbery.

He allegedly wore body armor and a jacket labeled "Police, " and had demanded $2,000 from the victim.

When police arrived at the scene, they found Ector and the victim, who had been handcuffed, according to the indictment handed up by a federal grand jury.

The indictment charges him with impersonating a federal officer and illegally possessing a firearm.

He could receive up to three years on the impersonation charge and 10 years on the weapons charge.
