San Carlos Man Accused Of Impersonating SFPD Officer

SAN CARLOS (CBS SF) — A San Carlos man has been charged with impersonating a police officer after he allegedly went to a San Mateo County sheriff’s substation and used a fake badge to obtain police reports, a deputy district attorney said Tuesday.

Michael Juricich, 48, allegedly went to the San Carlos substation on July 11 and showed a fake San Francisco police badge to a records clerk and a sheriff’s sergeant in order to obtain police reports related to a custody issue, Deputy District Attorney Al Serrato said.

Sheriff’s officials became suspicious and determined that Juricich was not a police officer, Serrato said.

Investigators believe Juricich had been to the substation on at least one other occasion and displayed his counterfeit badge to a deputy, Serrato said.

Juricich was arrested outside his San Carlos home on Friday afternoon.

He faces multiple charges of impersonating a peace officer and displaying false government-issued identification.

Juricich is out of custody on $10,000 bail. He is scheduled to enter a plea in San Mateo County Superior Court on Aug. 17.
