A Paducah man who was impersonating a federal agent has been arrested by McCracken County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO). Corey Thorson, 45, of Paducah allegedly claimed to be a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, according to a statement released by the MCSO. 

A victim told police Thorson made several threats of arrest if his demands were not met.  Detectives contacted the ATF field office in Paducah in June and verified Thorson was not an ATF agent. 

Thorson was on supervised release with the US Probation and Parole Office in Paducah due to a conviction of federal charges including three counts of Impersonating a Peace Officer, a Class D Felony and three counts of Harassing Communications, a Class A Misdemeanor. 

MCSO Detectives issued a release which states they believe there are more victims who have yet to be identified. They’re asking anyone with information about or encounters with Thorson allegedly impersonating a federal agent to call 270-444-4719.
