Robert Muschette Jr Wiki – Bio
Robert Muschette Jr, 53, was caught Thursday in the parking lot of the Mall of Prince George in Hyattsville, Maryland after police noticed his dark green Ford Explorer driving with its red and blue emergency lights flashing.
Muschette, who lives in District Heights, claimed he worked for “DC police” but later admitted he was a “special officer” for a law enforcement agency, police said. Investigators determined that although Muschette worked for a law enforcement agency, he was not authorized to have emergency lights in his vehicle or a firearm due to prior convictions. This is clearly the case of an individual who was on a power trip, who is doing nothing more than using illegitimate authority to stop people and victimize them,” Hyattsville Police Chief Jarod Towers told WUSA9.

Searching his car, officers found the loaded gun in plain sight in the front passenger seat. Investigators also found in the car a police-style badge, a ballistic vest, ammunition, handcuffs, and two officer-style caps with the word “police” written on them. In addition to the charges of impersonating a police officer, Muschette also faces five weapons-related charges, including one felony count of possession of firearms with a felony conviction.
Hyattsville police are also looking into Muschette’s motive, and whether he ever had any interactions with residents while posing as an officer, urging anyone who has been in contact with him to come forward. We take our relationship with our community seriously and are concerned that members of the community may have interacted with Muschette Jr. while he was posing as a police officer,” the department wrote on Facebook.
Towers added: “We want to be able to prosecute him and hold him accountable for any crimes that he committed while he was acting as a police officer.” Muschette was released Friday after posting a $5,000 bond, according to court records. He is due back in Prince George’s County court on April 10.
