Have you seen this individual?

On December 20, 2018, U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security Service (DSS) special agents arrested Mitchell Shoemaker (shown above) for impersonating a law enforcement officer and other federal charges.

Investigators believe Shoemaker may have represented himself as a law enforcement officer to members of the Houston area community on more than one occasion.

The DSS Houston Field Office asks that anyone with information contact DSS at (713) 654-0463.
