A Utica man is facing felony charges after he allegedly impersonated law enforcement and called his ex-girlfriend, according to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office.
Brandon Hanrahan, 33, is charged with first-degree criminal contempt and first-degree criminal impersonation, both felonies.
Deputies say Hanrahan allegedly called his ex-girlfriend at work in Westmoreland and claimed to be a member of the Sheriff’s Office’s Road Patrol. Deputies say Hanrahan’s ex-girlfriend has an order of protection in place, which is a complete stay-away order and makes it illegal for him to contact her in any way.
Hanrahan turned himself in to deputies at the Sheriff’s Office, and he was then arrested and held at the Oneida County Jail pending arraignment.
