A 52-year-old Ceres man has been arrested on two counts of impersonating an officer after he allegedly donned a San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department uniform shirt to search two north Modesto massage parlors.

During an investigation into two bizarre encounters, staff at the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department saw surveillance photos and recognized Doyle Swarm, 52, of Ceres, from an encounter in late February. Modesto Police Department detectives then served a search warrant at Swarm's Ceres home where they located the uniform shirt used during his searches at the massage businesses.

Modesto Police Department spokeswoman Heather Graves said Swarm reportedly spoke few words as he searched Vintage Massage on Dale Road on Wednesday, March 7. A witness reported that Swarm walked into the business wearing a uniform shirt, past the counter to several rooms where he opened drawers and cabinets. The man then left through the front door. The day before a similar incident happened when the same man showed up at Vintage Massage on McHenry Avenue. The witness at the McHenry location said Swarm was wearing a jacket over the uniform shirt and when asked if he needed anything, took his jacket off saying he was a cop. The man then searched the rooms inside the business before leaving.
