CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – According to the Clarksville Police Department, two solders at Fort Campbell have reportedly confessed to being the police impersonators authorities warned residents about on Monday.

Brett Jewell and William Jones were each booked into the Montgomery County jail on Tuesday on three counts of criminal impersonation. Each has a bond of $30,000.

Their arrests came after witnesses and victims reported two men pretending to pull people over, in some cases demanding drugs and money.

According to Clarksville police, they drove a white car with a flashing red and blue light on the dashboard and one man had a badge similar to the badge worn by Montgomery County deputies.

The men are accused of making at least three stops on Crossland Avenue, Glen Street and Madison Street. One of the cars they’re accused of stopping had two off-duty jail deputies inside.

On Tuesday, police said a field interview and photos of people who matched the descriptions of the police impersonators led them to their suspects, Jewell and Jones.
