Police arrest Albany man for impersonating a Trooper

On September 4, 2023, State Police of Latham arrested Keshawn M. Bacchus, 22, of Albany, NY, for Criminal Impersonation in the first degree, Aggravated Harassment in the second degree and Falsely Reporting a crime in the third degree. On August 19, 2023, Troopers received a complaint from a Colonie, NY business. The investigation determined Bacchus reportedly contacted the business via email and phone. During the conversations, he identified himself as a New York State Trooper and impersonated a law enforcement officer. During the communication, Bacchus falsely accused an individual who worked for the business of a crime. Bacchus was arrested at his home and transported to SP Latham for processing. He was issued an appearance ticket returnable to the Colonie Town Court on September 13, 2023, and released.
