Ricky Ball; phony LEO, phony SEAL

| December 6, 2017 | 34 Comments

Sj sends us a link to the story of Ricky Ball in Greenville, North Carolina who was sentenced to eight years in prison for impersonating a State Bureau of Investigation agent.

Ricky Ball, 40, pleaded guilty in September to lesser charges after facing a four-count indictment in August. He was sentenced Tuesday to eight years in federal prison plus an addition three years of supervised release.

According to the US Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina’s Office, Ball — who worked as a loss prevention officer at Sears — told an intern at the Greenville Fire Department he worked as an SBI agent and could get her parking tickets dismissed.

At the time he was impersonating a law enforcement officer, he was on probation in Virginia from impersonating a Navy SEAL. He was also arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm. So much fail in this story from Sears’ hiring practices to ineffective gun control laws. Don Shipley busted Ball two years ago for his SEAL claims. He actually fooled some SEALs into believing that he was legit, according to Don.

    Toss in a little fake Native American and we have a “Phildo” trifecta!

    Sears is still a thing? I thought they all closed.

      Circling the drain. My guess is that 2018 or at the latest 2019 they go Tango Uniform.

      All the K-marts in our area are now gone as well. That’s another business that won’t make it to the 2020’s.

        Why Sears thought it was a good idea to acquire K-Mart a few years back is beyond me. I think Sears has sold off Craftsman and a few other profitable lines. There is little left. To survive, Sears and JCP should consider merging and slashing stores to an absolute minimum, keeping only those that are profitable. Malls are a ghost town what with the anchor stores closing down.

    Easier to pretend you’re a cop than to go through all the interviews, physical and psychological testing, the background checks, the months of academy training, the months of field training, and all that jazz.

  6. Wilted Willy says:

    What a dick! I would think he was from Florida? I hope he gets to serve all eight years! His asshole will flop like an old catchers mitt by then? Good luck cocksucker!!

    Judge Howard doesn’t take that stuff lightly here in NC. Good job sir.

    I guess that he will not have a ‘BALL’ while serving his time in the joint.

    I surprised that Lavar Ball hasn’t instinctively jumped to this clown’s defense.
