Rancho Cordova police would like to talk with anyone who may have had contact with a man accused of impersonating a law enforcement officer.

Shane Jack, 46, was taken into custody Sunday after a private security officer patrolling property in the 10600 block of White Rock Road in Rancho Cordova reported that he had confronted a man who displayed a suspicious looking badge and had identified himself as a peace officer.

Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies and Rancho Cordova police officers responded and found Jack sitting in his vehicle with a woman in the parking lot of the business complex. Officers, upon further investigation, discovered that Jack was not a law enforcement officer, according to a Rancho Cordova Police Department news release.

A search of Jack’s vehicle turned up items including a replica firearm, walkie-talkie, flashlights, handcuffs, a fake government vehicle license plate and a fake badge that Jack reportedly displayed when claiming to be a peace officer, officials said.

Jack was booked into Sacramento County jail on suspicion of impersonating a peace officer and unlawfully altering an imitation firearm. Jack’s vehicle, a gray Toyota Tundra pickup, was towed following his arrest.

Rancho Cordova police and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department ask anyone who may have had contact with Jack under unusual circumstances to call 916-874-5115. Tip information also may be left at or by calling 916-874-8477.
