Officers responded to a call from Walgreen’s at about 10 a.m. Thursday, where store employees said a man roused their suspicion by claiming he was a police officer who had lost his wallet when buying items at the store. Police contacted the man, who continued to identify himself as police. He was eventually identified as 36-year-old Fredrick Lee Sparks Jr. of Leadington, who is not a police officer. When taken into custody, Sparks was searched and found to have methamphetamine and paraphernalia in his pockets. He was taken to Callaway County Jail on $15,000 bond.
