Lee Patrick Broome, 32, was charged with theft, criminal impersonation and identity theft and is being held on $10,000 bond at the Germantown city jail. Police say Broome told a victim at the Germantown Chick-fil-A on Oct. 5 that he had locked his keys and wallet in his car, and handed the victim a business card identifying himself as a marine.
He then asked the victim for a loan to have the car unlocked, and the victim allegedly drove Broome to an ATM and withdrew $550. After he gave Broome the money and began asking questions, police say Broome fled from the scene on foot, but his picture was captured by the ATM. Germantown Police said they were able to identify and charge Broome using tips from Crime Stoppers. He is scheduled in Germantown municipal court Dec. 19.
