Moon Police: Clinton Man Impersonates Constable During Theft

Moon Police blotter for Thursday, Feb. 23.

A Clinton man has been charged with claiming to be a Pennsylvania State Constable after he was caught shoplifting at Super Kmart on Market Place Boulevard. 

Benjamin Sites, 26, was charged with retail theft and impersonating a public servant after police said he told Kmart management last month to "show him some professional courtesy" because he was a state constable, according to police records. 

Store employees stopped Sites when they saw him attempting to remove tags from a jacket while leaving the store. Sites told store management that he was a state constable, but could not produce a badge or identification. He instead showed staff his permit to carry a concealed firearm. 

Police said they could find no record of Sites ever being employed as a constable.  

A date for his preliminary hearing in Coraopolis District Court was not available.
