Release from the City of Parsons

PARSONS, KS - A 29-year-old Parsons man has made his first appearance in Labette County District Court on Tuesday and has been charged with False Impersonation among several other charges stemming from a weekend incident.

On March 16, Andrew Hutto participated in a conceal/carry class at the Humboldt Police Department. The next day Hutto, who was wearing a Humboldt Police Department Jacket, attempted to purchase a shotgun saying he was a police officer and was declined at a local department store. The store immediately reported the purchase attempt to police. Hutto was arrested minutes later inside the store. He was carrying a 9mm concealed weapon at the time of the arrest.

During the subsequent investigation, officers found the following Humboldt Police Department equipment in Hutto's home: a handheld police radio, police uniform shirts, a police jacket, handcuffs, and two mace canisters. In addition, a .22 caliber handgun was also recovered. It had been stolen from a vehicle during the conceal/carry class.

Hutto has been charged in Labette County District Court, and is currently being held in the Labette County Jail. He was charged with False Impersonation, Possession of Stolen Property, and Criminal Use of a Weapon. Hutto is also expected to be charged in Allen County.

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to call the Parsons Police Department at (620) 421-7060, anonymous tips at (620) 421-7057 or tips@parsonspd.com <mailto:tips@parsonspd.com>.
