July 31, 2023
CANTONMENT, Fla. – Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) arrested Bobbie Lei Sales, 35, of Cantonment, for falsely impersonating a police officer. 
FDLE agents began their investigation in May after receiving information that Sales identified herself as an FDLE agent. The investigation shows that Sales visited a victim’s home and presented a silver badge while wearing a firearm. She told the victim that he was under investigation and said she would be back in a couple of weeks to search his home.
On a separate occasion, Sales, while having her vehicle repaired at a local dealership, identified herself as working for FDLE.   
Agents believe there could be additional victims.  If you have been approached by Sales identifying herself as a law enforcement officer, please contact FDLE Pensacola at 1-800- 226-8574.
Sales is charged with one count of falsely impersonating a police officer.  She turned herself into the Escambia County Jail on July 26.   The Office of the State Attorney, First Judicial Circuit, will prosecute the case.
