Imposter DCF Investigator Sought By Law Enforcement

LABELLE, FL.-- Deputies with the Hendry County Sheriff’s Office are asking parents to be aware as it was reported Friday that a female identifying herself as a Department of Children and Families Investigator, attempted to enter the home of a woman, telling the mother she was there to conduct a “home check” and to “check up” on her child due to prior allegations. 

When the mother refused to allow the female into her home and said they would contact law enforcement, she began to back away to her vehicle telling her, “well I have everything I need to close the case” and left the area.

The mother described the vehicle as a 2000-2010 White Volkswagen Beetle with a Black top. Suspect female is described as approximately 5’4”-5’8”, 30-40 years of age, thin build with dark colored hair.

Hendry County Sheriff’s Office followed up with the Department of Children and Families and was told that no one should have been at her house yesterday.

The victim did not recognize the woman and was unable to get a tag number from the vehicle. The suspect female was not able to provide any identification nor was she wearing any clothing that would identify her as a DCF Investigator.

Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden said, “The fact that someone would go to a person’s home, identify themselves as an Investigator and attempt to gain entry is very concerning to us. We are asking if you see or hear anything suspicious to contact the Hendry County Sheriff’s Office immediately”.

If you have any information or know who this female may be, please contact the Hendry County Sheriff’s Office at 863-674-5600.
