Man Impersonates Sergeant & Steals From Churches

armyIf you're going to impersonate someone, how about a Kardashian? It would be cute, funny, and as long it's done with the right intentions, no harm would be done. Someone you probably don't want to impersonate, on the other hand, is a sergeant of the U.S. Army.

Vanness M. Baker Jr., 30, doesn't share this sentiment, as he was recently charged with second-degree criminal impersonation for doing just that. Oh, and it doesn't stop there. He also was making his way around the local churches soliciting money so he could "return to base."

Talk about bad karma.


Claiming to be someone you're not is one thing. Stealing money from others is another. Taking money from churches while saying you're a sergeant in the Army, a person who lives by a code of bravery and honor, is a whole 'nother level of wrong.

And just think, this could have totally been avoided, Mr. Baker. If you wanted to be a sergeant in the Army so badly, you should have just joined.

What do you think of Vaness pretending to be a sergeant? What about him stealing?!
