A Bacliff resident had keys to a vehicle taken from him at gunpoint by a man falsely claiming to be a deputy sheriff late Wednesday.  

Galveston County Sheriff's deputies were called to the 200 block of Texas in Bacliff about 11:35 PM after a caller reported a man saying he was a deputy sheriff, wearing a police-type hat, displaying a badge and brandishing a pistol, took a set of keys to a car the caller's girlfriend was in the process of purchasing.  Deputies learned the man and a woman believed to be the owner of the car returned a short time later and took the vehicle, the actual ownership of which is disputed.  

The victim told investigating deputies he believed the impersonator, who left the scene in a white Toyota truck, was actually a deputy based on the hat the man was wearing along with the badge he showed.  The victim was uninjured.    

Information provided by the victim led to deputies to find the impersonator and his vehicle at a gas station in the 1700 block of W. Walker in League City.  They found a cap displaying a "Department of Corrections" emblem, a gold "State of Texas Process Server" badge, and a pistol, all matching the descriptions given by the victim, inside the impersonator's truck.  

Curtis Andrew Wheeler, 43, of Houston, was taken into custody without incident and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Impersonating a Public Servant.  Wheeler was later released from the Galveston County Jail after posting bonds totaling $60,000.  

Deputies believe Wheeler is a private process server with no authority as a law enforcement officer.

Report this process server to the Process Server Review board. This is unacceptable behavior and should not be tollerated.
