Police Log: Impersonation, DUI, family dispute
Impersonating Bruins owner
A 37-year-old New York state man, who also has a residence on Drum Hill Road, was charged with criminal impersonation July 20 in connection with a Nov. 3, 2017 traffic stop in Wilton.
Police said Jeffrey C. Jacobs, of 1 Renaissance Square, White Plains, N.Y, was taken into custody in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., where he was being held on an extraditable warrant by the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Department.
He was brought to Wilton on a warrant, processed, and released on $5,000 bond with a court date of July 30.
He had allegedly impersonated Jeremy Jacobs, the owner of the Boston Bruins hockey team. In May of 2017, Wilton police received a call from the Bruins organization saying they received a collection notice regarding tree work that Jeffrey Jacobs incurred at his home in Wilton.
It was found he had employed the tree-cutting service, and said he was Jeremy Jacobs, the owner of the Bruins. The service was never paid and sent a bill to the Bruins ownership, who notified police. Then, in November, in an attempt to get out of a ticket, Jacobs allegedly told a traffic officer he was Jeremy Jacobs and owned the Bruins.
