A man who impersonated an FBI agent in Mississippi has pled guilty.
U.S. Attorney Mike Hurst announced that 34-year-old Troy Graham, of New Orleans, entered guilty pleas on 3 counts of extortion, brandishing a firearm during a robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Graham also admitted that he impersonated a federal agent and demanded drugs and money from a Kiln, Mississippi marijuana dealer by threatening the dealer with false arrest warrants and imprisonment. Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives learned of the impersonation and posed as a marijuana supplier from Colorado.
According to Hurst, Graham was then arrested by ATF agents in a D’Iberville parking lot when he showed up with a loaded gun to rob the “Colorado dealer.”
Graham faces a potential sentence of 37 years to life on the three charges, and his sentencing has been scheduled for June 28th.
