Omaha men busted for posing as border patrol agents

A parking valet at a Council Bluffs, Iowa, casino is credited with helping authorities nab two Omaha men who were allegedly impersonating border patrol agents.

Twenty-four-year-old Darcey Young and 33-year-old Adam Woltjer were charged in U.S. District Court in Council Bluffs with impersonating federal officers, after a parking valet at the Ameristar Casino in Council Bluffs questioned the authenticity of badges the men allegedly flashed.

According to court documents, the men arrived in the parking lot of the casino last week, with their vehicles’ lights flashing. Both cars had Border Patrol insignia on the side. Woltjer allegedly showed a badge to a parking valet. But the valet became suspicious and called casino security.

The security officers in turn called the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation. When authorities questioned the men, Young and Woltjer allegedly admitted that they were just posing as Border Patrol agents. Young’s father told an Omaha television station Woltjer duped his son into committing the illegal act.
