Johnstown Bounty Hunter Gets Jail Time for Posing as Law Enforcement
Johnstown bounty hunter, Matthew Marre, 30, posed as a law enforcement officer to apprehend subjects and is going to prison for it, according to a Loveland-Reporter Herald report.
He falsely claimed to be a law enforcement officer to gain access to cell phone records from major cell phone carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon), and would use false insignia in emails to make his work seem like official law enforcement business.
In his requests, Marre would say that he needed to locate suicidal subjects, when he really used to the information to locate people he was hired to apprehend, according to U.S. Attorney Jason R. Dunn.
Marre worked as a contractor for three bail bondsman companies in Colorado, according to a news release from Dunn's office.
Court documents reveal that a contractor for bail bondsman companies do not allow law enforcement power.
The FBI was tipped off by about Marre's activities by Verizon in November 2018, and has now caught and sentenced him to 15 months in prison and three years of supervised release by U.S. District Court Judge R. Brooke Jackson.
