During a conversation with a second officer who arrived on the scene, Candea claimed he also worked for the United States Treasury Department, the complaint states.
After running his name, police couldn't find any record of him working at any of these agencies. What they did find however was several outstanding warrants for his arrest, the Daily Beast reported.
When asked why he hadn't appeared in court before any of them, he replied: "I never go to court. I have too much authority in the United States."
Impounding his vehicle, investigators also found inside two empty business envelopes, both addressed to him (one at CIA Headquarters, the other at The Pentagon); hardwired blue lights, multiple radios, and a stun gun. They also discovered paperwork and receipts showing he had purchased hundreds of rounds of ammunition and several guns.
According to his apparent Facebook page, Candea works for the CIA and lives in Langley, Virginia.
But according to his apparent LinkedIn page, he has run a tree-trimming business in Ohio for the past 23 years.
