3 charged with impersonating law enforcement officers

Lexington S.C. – Two men and a woman are charged with impersonating law enforcement officers after Lexington County deputies said the suspects claimed to be cops and talked their way into a Pelion home last month.

Chad David Andrews, 31, Emily Kristin Moore, 24, and Kenneth Ray Wooten, 43, are also charged with first degree burglary, according to arrest warrants.

“Based on the statements and evidence detectives have gathered, the three suspects said they were Lexington County narcotics agents and investigating a crime when they entered a Fairview Road home at about 2:30 in the morning April 30,” Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon said.

The woman who lives at the house told detectives she thought she was doing the right thing and had to let the three people inside, according to Koon.

“She wasn’t injured and we’re not aware of anything being taken from the home,” Koon said. “This was still a very risky situation that could’ve turned out much differently.”

Wooten is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center. Andrews and Moore have been released after meeting conditions of their bond.
