Mechanicsburg Man Sentenced for Impersonating a Federal Agent

The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced today that Brandon H. Schnetzka, age 41, of York, Pennsylvania was sentenced today to 18 months’ incarceration in a federal prison by Senior United States District Court Judge Sylvia Rambo. Schnetzka pleaded guilty to one count of impersonating an officer or employee of the United States on July 30, 2014.

According to United States Attorney Peter Smith, the charge against Schnetzka is a result of a report that he falsely represented himself as a Special Agent from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in order to fraudulently procure a Lexus loaner vehicle from a Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania dealership. After multiple requests, Schnetzka eventually returned the vehicle after using it for 8 days.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Silver Spring Township Police Department. This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Meredith A. Taylor.
