Alleged impostor arrested near middle school
September 7, 2005
A Carson City teen was arrested Tuesday for allegedly impersonating a firefighter at Carson Middle School.
Roger Schuler, 18, posted a $2,632 bail at the Carson City Jail where he was held on suspicion of gross misdemeanor impersonating a peace officer.
According to the police report, Schuler allegedly entered Carson Middle School about 2 p.m. dressed in “full Pleasant Valley Fire Department jumpsuit,” and went to the nurse’s office claiming to be there for a child who overdosed.
Schuler then allegedly “walked around the school for a short time acting as if he was conducting fire department duties,” wrote Deputy Rick Encinas in his report.
Deputies found Schuler at Musser and Curry streets, questioned him and called the local fire jurisdictions, discovering Schuler was not affiliated with any departments in the area.
