Fake EMS worker found at Sandwich Fair

Posted by wlpo on September 11, 2016

EMS workers at a fair or other public event assure you that help is there if there’s a problem.  Yesterday afternoon about 4:30pm, there was a problem at the Sandwich Fair.  It was discovered that one of the EMS workers was a fake.

A  Dekalb County Sheriff’s deputy came to the scene and found 28-year old Andrew Pepperdine of Yorkville. The deputy’s investigation alleges Pepperdine was wearing a Fire Department shirt, pager and scanner and allegedly making statements to people that he was an EMS worker.  Pepperdine was charged with falsely impersonating an EMS worker and taken to the Dekalb County jail pending bond.
