Cypress man accused of posing as an inspector to get free cigarettes

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A Texas man has been charged with pretending to be a government inspector to get free cigarettes from a store and then lighting up outside.

Bexar County jail records show 30-year-old Chad William Fisher of Cypress was being held Monday on charges of criminal trespass and impersonation of a public servant.

Jail records don’t list an attorney to speak for Fisher, whose bond was $16,500 following his weekend arrest.

Court documents say Fisher on Nov. 1 stopped at a San Antonio-area convenience store and posed as a Food and Drug Administration agent checking for counterfeit and fraud. An affidavit says a clerk gave Fisher several packs and he went outside and smoked some.

He returned later for more cigarettes, pretended to be with the CIA and allegedly tried to steal beer.
