RINCON, GA -

You are supposed to trust the people who protect and serve us every day.  

But one man has broken that trust by lying about his position and then stealing from one victim, and maybe many more.

His name is Kenneth Lundquist, but some folks know him as Kenneth Peters.

He was well known on some dating websites, and now he's well known by police.

Lundquist is facing felony charges for impersonating a federal agent.

Rincon Police say he went on dating websites and told women he was a U.S. marshal.

Investigators say he would start a relationship with them, and then in at least one case, steal thousands of dollars.

"He uses his profile that he is a US marshal., That he is on the Fugitive Task Force. Gains their interest, says that he is prior military," explains Rincon Police Sgt Jose Ramirez. "That allows him to have that access of having to leave town. Go to other towns and come back because he'll say those other job assignments take him to other areas."

"We're putting our lives on the line every day," said Ramirez. "And that somebody who is a criminal is using our profession to go out there and abuse people that we protect and serve. We take it seriously and we really want to hold this person accountable."

Lundquist was so bold with his lies, that he even told a Rincon Police officer at another scene he was a federal agent.

He has a lengthy criminal record, and has spent time in jail in other states for other scams.

Rincon Police say he may have left the area, but may have left behind more victims.

If you know Kenneth Lundquist AKA Ken Peters or think you were scammed by him, or can help investigators find him, call Rincon police right now.

Their number is 912-826-5900.
