LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Two South Plains' men now face charges for impersonating a police officer. Lubbock Police report that Randall Womack, 23 of Lubbock and David Shaffer, 23 of Lamesa went to an apartment near 62nd Street and University Avenue in late September.
The victim says the men banged on her door, claimed to be police, and then tried to force the door open. When they couldn't get in, they left. The victim told police Womack is an ex-boyfriend. He's already jailed on a parole violation.
She also told police that Shaffer worked at the Smith Prison Unit in Lamesa. Another man in the apartment told police that Shaffer held a badge up to the window, but all he could see is that it had the word "Texas" on it with other words that he wasn't able to read.
KCBD contacted the Department of Criminal Justice. A spokeswoman tells us they had a correctional officer with Shaffer's name and date of birth, but he retired in July, citing personal reasons. Shaffer had not been booked into the Lubbock County Jail at the time of this report.
