Perkins Township Police Chief Vince Donald tells the FOX 8 I-TEAM Shane Edward Boulton, of Jonesboro, Arkansas, was arrested at a local hotel after he told several people he was a U.S. Marshal.

“He was carrying a firearm, drinking, and saying he was a U.S. Marshal,” the chief said.  “He had two loaded guns.”

Donald added that since Boulton has a previous felony conviction he is not permitted to have a gun.

“He said he was in town supposedly to do a good deed for a couple he was traveling with and told them he was going to buy them a refurbished semi-truck for $100,000,” Donald said.

He is being held in the Erie County jail.

Boulton is due in Sandusky Municipal Court June 30.
